I want to thank St. Joseph's Parish for hosting this event each year. Your hospitality and generosity is truly appreciated.
All three parishes from the city were represented in attendance at today's retreat. I truly enjoy spending this time with those who are preparing to enter the Church at the Easter Vigil. This annual event is also a great boost to my own preparation for the season of Lent. As I challenge those who are preparing to receive the Sacraments of Initiation, I am also challenging myself. Is my own faith built on solid rock?
Tomorrow is World Day of the Sick. Although the Sunday celebration takes precedence over the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, it is still good to remember in prayer all those who are sick.
My reflection question today is this:
When is your presence a source of healing to others?
