Lord, Holy Father, show us what kind of man it is who is hanging for our sakes on the cross, whose suffering causes the rocks themselves to crack and crumble with compassion, whose death brings the dead back to life. Let my heart crack and crumble at the sight of him. Let my soul break apart with compassion for his suffering. Let it be shattered with grief at my sins for which he dies. And finally let is be softened with devoted love for him. Amen.
We celebrated the 60th anniversary of the St. Gerard Majella Church, as well as the Feast Day of St. Gerard Majella. We had a lovely reception after mass on Sunday, October 15. Raffle ticket winners were announced. Pictures from the event are included below.
