Find Your Way

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The birds are singing. The grass is greening. The daffodils are bright yellow. Signs of new life abound on Folly Quarter Road!

This week we celebrate the holiest week of the year. As we enter into the final days of Jesus' earthly ministry, the Friars invite you to come and spend some time at the Shrine. Our website is full of information about the many activities planned to help you experience in a deep way the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus has show us that through suffering and death new life follows. We all have moments of Gethsamane and Good Friday in our daily lives but let's not forget that life did not end on Calvary. Suffering and death are not the final word. Nature knows this fact so well. How about you?

Pax et Bonum,

Fr. Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.
