As I was pondering Paul today... I recalled Jesus being scourged as I did the sorrowful mysteries in Adoration. I pray each decade remembering my 5 children and their families and Communities. So powerful to pray for each of them on down the line, and then I had to add one for Pat/The Crucifixion/5th sorrowful every day as he is my Most Cherished Cross and through the Sacrament of Matrimony lived out each day we are crucified to self so that we can go forward down the narrow path carrying/dragging our Most Cherished Cross and following after Jesus through the intercession of Mary, my daily companion and helper.
Jesus, we yearn to come to give you all the praise and rejoice with JOY at all you give us to face all the difficulties pain and suffering that comes to us in our day to day lives! May we trust and give our all over to you. Come Holy Spirit and fill us with LOVE on fire to lead us into prayer and hymns to YOU alone. Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
