FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT                                                                                                MARCH 30, 2014


                                                                                                    THE GIFT OF FORGIVENESS


    I recommend to you the National Catholic Mission to be broadcast on Vision TV Monday and Tuesday evenings of Holy Week, April 14 & 15 at 7 & 11pm

     This year’s Mission reviews past Missions and looks at how the hurts and cruelties we inevitably experience during the first half of our lives, at school, at home and at work, may be a source of the anger and resentment we feel in our later years. It will offer a pathway to help us rediscover a mellow and compassionate heart.


    Fr Ron Rolheiser will explore sources of our anger.     Sr. Melannie Svoboda will speak from a personal perspective of the challenge to a mellow heart which arises from loss of  loved ones.  Paula D’Arcy relates how she handled the aftermath of personal and sudden tragedy. Tom Zanzig describes the challenge of living with his daughter Barb who is afflicted with mental illness.
