Pilgrimage Sunday at the Shrine
The annual Mother Cabrini Shrine Pilgrimage was celebrated on Sunday, July 13. Masses were celebrated; there were rosary processions, a bake sale and food was also available in the cafeteria. It was a wonderful day to celebrate the birth of St. Frances Cabrini as well as the anniversary of her canonization. A group of dancers made a pilgrimage of Thanksgiving by doing their traditional dance from the main chapel, down to the grotto, up the 373 steps and then made their way back to the main chapel. We are grateful to all of our volunteers for their service and to all who came to celebrate with us.
Mother Cabrini Shrine Garden
Volunteers of Mother Cabrini Shrine have planted a Garden for the Hungry. All varieties of vegetables are growing and some are ready for harvest. On Pilgrimage Sunday, bags of kale, radishes, greens, lettuce, arugula, chard and spinach were given away.
Excerpts from Pope Francis’s “The Joy of the Gospel”
The Holy Spirit gives us the courage to proclaim fearlessly what we believe, both with words and with lives lived convincingly.
Spirit-filled people do not speak of their faith or invite others to join them because it is their mere duty. They do so because it is in their heart and they can’t resist speaking about it.Let us invite the Spirit to fill us now.
Every human being reflects God. We are God’s people. Wonderful!
We may not feel full satisfaction, but we can trust that, no matter what, love will be stronger than hate, light will conquer darkness, and our struggle will pay off.
