An odd First Friday: April 2020

One mantra that has been going through my mind and my heart during these extraordinarily odd days: “My grace is sufficient for you” (2 Cor 12:9).

Don’t take me for undermining the sacramental life of the Church and the sacramentality of the Incarnation of Christ nor the tangible yet transcendent beauty of the Holy Mass. I am encouraging you to take ALL the graces from this strange time. A time for increasing our faith, our hope, and our charity.

Today, traditionally was a day to commemorate the Sorrows of Our Lady. Go to the heart of Mary today, as a place of solace, but also as a place to console the heart pierced with sorrow.

This commemoration of the Sorrows of Our Lady on this Friday of Passiontide was particularly dear to the Passionists, in their liturgical calendar.
