This week, as Catholics around the world enter into the passion and sufferings of Christ, I encourage you to get out and go to the beautiful liturgies and partake in the traditions that have been celebrated in remembrance from the time of Christ. I encourage you to walk with Christ up the mountainside of Calvary and not be afraid to carry your own crosses whatever they may be. Place them at the foot of the cross where you gain hope through Christ who died for you.
So, are you suffering physically, mentally or emotionally? Are you lonely, afraid, addicted or feeling trapped? Then this is a time you don’t want to let slip by without making an effort to attain the graces. This is the week to find strength in the cross, in death which is overcome by Christ’s rising from the dead. This is the week that all of history (His Story) points to as the new beginning, the moment death was trampled and the gates of heaven were opened.
Here is where I need help. Since I'm reflecting a lot about suffering this week, I thought it would be a good time to ask my audience what you're struggling with, how are you suffering, and where do you need help? By sharing this information with me I will first, lift you up in prayer and second, it will help me create content that is relevant, answering your questions and connecting with you where you're at. I'm excited about sharing my story, my knowledge and expertise with you through my efforts here at Fit Catholic Mom. The more I know you, my audience, the better I can serve you. You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on my blog. I look forward to hearing from you!
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Blessings upon your Holy Week,
