Reflections from a Carpenter’s Angle
"YOU COULD NOT KEEP WATCH WITH ME?"
These words of Jesus to his closest companions had to
hurt. Even if you only have thirty minutes I am sure the
Lord will reward you a hundred fold. How many of our
saints claimed the power they had came from spending
an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Do not
miss the special grace available to all our parish family
this week. Keep watch with Jesus! Visit the Lord in the
Eucharist. Our church doors will be open both day and
night. We will have adoration around the clock
beginning on Thursday night until we close with our
vigil mass on Saturday March 21st.
Come Let Us Adore Him!
