Dear Friend of the Passionists,
The Founder of the Passionists, St. Paul of the Cross, sought to encourage people to meditate on the Passion of Jesus in order to appreciate, and, on a deeper level, to accept and better understand the love God has for each and every one of us.
When I meditate on the Cross of Christ, I realize not only how much God loves me, but also how much God loves all of us, indeed, all of creation. The Cross of Christ reminds me of how connected we are to each other.
With this email, we want to let you know that we have new cards for you to use in expressing your connection to the people in your life. The cards include those for occasions of every kind, including birthdays or a simple message to let the recipient know you are thinking of them. Each card carries with it the promise of your prayer and that of our Passionist Community for the person mentioned. As you use the enclosed cards, please send us the names of the people you especially want remembered in our daily prayers.
We’ve also invite you to send your intentions to be remembered in a special Mass celebrating the Birth of Mary on September 8. We Passionists celebrate her life as the Mother of Jesus, and through Him as our Mother as well.
We kindly ask your support by making a donation when you send in the names for our prayer. Your donation helps make possible our Passionist life and mission in the 21st Century. When we proclaim the love of God in Christ’s Passion, we remind people that they are not alone, but rather are strongly connected to the Jesus who carried His cross for us.
May God continue to bless you and yours. Please pray for us, as we remember you in our daily prayers and Masses.
Yours in Christ’s love,
Fr. Michael Higgins, CP
