A Virtual Pilgrimage – St. Paul’s Co-Workers… Were NOT Only Men

Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. to noon

Saint John XXIII, when he announced the Second Vatican Council, described the Church as a living garden of life. Especially in this Easter season, we are reminded of the monumental role St. Paul played in planting its seeds to the ends of the earth. And from the very beginning, standing by his side were amazing women who fearlessly and tirelessly worked with him to nurture those tiny saplings into a luscious vineyard of the Lord. Join us as we explore the world of three of these exceptional women whose lives of faith and service to God shine with the ideals of Vatican II, just like St. Paul did himself. Paul’s co-workers they truly were . . . their co-workers we can truly be.

The Resurrection of Christ – Icon Reflections

The Icons of the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii

The Icons of the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii provide us with a rich resource for prayer, and a way to encounter Christ; Mary, the Mother of God; and the Saints depicted more deeply.  We invite you to view this image of The Resurrection of Christ, then to reflect on the scene more deeply and prayerfully.  We hope that your prayers are deeper, we also hope that through deeper prayer your faith is strengthened.

Icon reflections provided by Dan Ruscu, a professor of Greek Catholic theology and a member of Pietre Vive’s International Board.

Christ is Risen!   He is Risen indeed!   Alleluia!

Virtual Visitation of 7 Churches

Categories: Homepage Feature, Other

Virtual Visitation of 7 Churches – Now Available via our YouTube channel.

On Holy Thursday, we commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus. After that supper, Christ journeyed to the Garden of Gethsemane. There, he prayed until the time of his arrest, leading to his crucifixion, which we commemorate on Good Friday. It is that Night Watch of the Lord we remember when we visit a church on Holy Thursday evening.  Join The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in a prayer and meditation for a virtual Visitation to 7 Marian Shrines from around the world.

If you were not able to join the zoom presentation on Holy Thursday, we invite you to view the presentation via the video below.  Please click on the video below, then please enter ‘full screen’ for best possible viewing.  Thank You.
