He is Risen! I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! May the joy of this time of new life and the victory of Jesus be with all your families.
We have another member of the family of statues in the Gathering Area. Joining Pope St. John XXIII and Our Lady of Lourdes is St. Catherine of Siena. St Catherine was a saint of action who did everything united to Our Lord. This statue has her carrying bread and holding a lantern. She would go out to find those suffering to give them food. She also cared for victims of the plague. She is also wearing a crown of thorns which symbolizes her devotion to the wounds of Jesus.
What unites Pope St. John XXIII and St. Catherine of Siena is their great devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus.
In His Most Precious Blood,
