St. John the Evangelist Parish and the Shrine of the Passion of Christ in St. John, Indiana IMPRISONED IN MY BONES - May 24, 2015 ... "Wow!" Prior to leaving the house in the morning, my family and I gave some thought to the prayer intentions that we would be offering on this pilgrimage. Since May 23rd is the ordination anniversary of Fr. Luke Strand, the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, and since he has been suffering for so long with the effects of colon cancer, I thought it would be fitting to offer the day for him. Although a trip out of town is always a fun occasion, a pilgrimage is ...http://annebender.blogspot.com/2015/05/st-john-evangelist-parish-and-shrine-of.html

Sin Is Big! A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 18, 2015 After morning Mass at this church I attended as a visitor, I entered the basement chapel to meditate and pray. Afterwards I checked out the Stations of the Cross. At the 7th Station, I read "Jesus exhorts the women to weep not for him but for themselves; weep more for our sins than his sufferings." Jesus really makes a big point here (cf. Luke 23.28). Sin is a big thing ~ it offends God and can destroy us. It is to be avoided at all costs! ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/sin-is-big.html

(The Vigil takes place, of course, in the morning.) On the Vigil Catholics will fast in preparation because Pentecost is one of the great feasts. Anachronistically, please pray for the Catholic pilgrims we know from the blogosphere who will begin this week to march towards Chartres, before we next explore 1863: they are physically proclaiming and ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2015/05/sunday-in-octave-of-ascension-1863.html

Divine Mercy Sunday Reflections and Resources PRINTS OF GRACE - April 12, 2015 ... version of the Chaplet in a group was with a first year Confirmation class. One of the catechists I taught with that year put together an amazing PowerPoint presentation to help us meditate on Christ's Passion while listening and singing to the Chaplet on CD.

HAPPY (BELATED) EASTER....sort Of..... THE HOUSE OF MANY GRACES - April 11, 2015 ... dinner....I never realized I could make time to pray down at the abortion mill or go to stations of the cross every Friday. Our Lenten sacrifices, no matter how little or how stringent they may be, shows our love for Jesus and our appreciation for His love and sacrifices for us.

The Beginning of the End Has Come WITH A HOPEFUL HEART - April 1, 2015 It's Here! We're coming on the Triduum, those holiest days of the liturgical calendar. Based on how my Monday was going, I was pretty sure this was not the holiest week of the year or maybe it was and that's why it was so stinkin' *blah*. But then, the sun came out and the weather turned beautiful. What a foreshadowing of the upcoming days, right? The gloom, the dark, before the sunshine, the celebration. I'm trying to add an atmosphere of prayerfulness ...http://withahopefulheart.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-beginning-of-end-has-come.html

The Way of the Cross SCELATA - March 27, 2015 My parish has a booklet used for Stations, published and granted an imprimatur well after Nostra aetate was promulgated, in the '80s, in fact. The narrative it presents is that, okay, yeah, Pilate was in there somewhere, but the Jews were responsible for... well, pretty much everything in the crucifixion, right down to hammering in the nails. It doesn't say that, but the illustrations, of the ugly flat missallette circa 1975 style are filled with members of the Sanhedrin, ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-way-of-cross.html

I knew better than to make this a Lenten goal, because I was setting myself up to fail. ;-) So, what I decided to do is try to pray Morning and Evening Prayer for all of Holy Week. I'm off for part of Holy Week anyway, so I think it may actually be manageable. My plan is to start with evening prayer tomorrow, since that is the vigil of Palm Sunday, and I am SO EXCITED for Palm Sunday.
