a month, for over 20 years, I had the privilege of bringing The Eucharist to
and praying with Catholic residents in a local nursing home.
Last summer, my 92 year old mother moved in with my wife and myself as she was
unable to continue to live alone. For many years, Mom attended daily Mass
and was an active worker in her parish.
Since she has been with us, I have been permitted to bring her The Eucharist on
Sunday after Mass. This has been a special time for us to pray.
Over time, Mom has gotten weaker and I hear the same questions from her that I
heard from the nursing home residents I visited. Why doesn't God take
me? Why am I going through this? Why doesn't God answer my prayers?
Why do some people suffer while others die a quick death? Why do some
people die very young while others linger on for many years?
W Szkole Matki Bożej Częstochowskiej w Doylestown, podczas Wielkiego Postu, m.in. ukazujemy uczniom Jezusa jako Tego, który nie zgadza się na zło i uczy je pokonywać. Wprowadzamy dzieci w okres Wielkiego Postu. Uświadamiamy, że każdy potrzebuje nawrócenia, czyli odwrócenia się od zła, aby czynić dobro.
Daily Way of the Cross is a way of prayer. One walks, in spirit, with
Jesus on His journey to Calvary and meditates on His suffering and death. Each
meditation can be a personal meeting with Jesus and a new discovery of His
presence in one's life. Each meditation can be deeply personal by recalling
specific persons places and experiences in one's own life.
Plenary Indulgence is attached to this devotion according to article 194 of the
OPENING SCRIPTURE READING
Son of Man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected, and to be raised
up on the third day. If anyone wants to be a follower of Mine, let him renounce
himself and take up his cross every day and follow Me. For anyone who wants to
save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for My sake, that man
will save it" (Luke 9: 22-24).
