EMMAUS MINISTRY SPIRITUAL REFLECTIONS

GENERAL

“We Walk by Faith, Not by Sight.”  A beautiful Mass celebrated for Deceased Children of the Archdiocese of New York and Their Parents by Cardinal Timothy Dolan on June 13, 2021 at St. Patrick Cathedral in New York City, NY.  For a homily that is particularly comforting to grieving parents,  view Minutes 24:18-33:56.

What Does the Road to Emmaus Look Like Today? by Magdala, 40-Day Virtual Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands, 2021. Interesting.

God’s Mercy and Suicide by Fr. Chris Alar, MIC.  How Fr. Chris found an epiphany of hope after the suicide of his grandmother.  Very comforting

A Gift From Our Son, Paul, by Charley and Diane Monaghan. Amazing.
