Visit my on-line Stations of the Cross.  I wrote the text for children and
adults alike.  The Stations were illustrated by the children of Saint Pat's
School. They're available in English and Spanish as well. Visit the Stations
every day during Lent.  I think you'll like them a great deal.

St. Turibius of Mogrovejo (1538-1606) 
Together with Rose of Lima, Turibius is the first known saint of the New
World, serving the Lord in Peru, South America, for 26 years. Born in Spain
and educated for the law, he became so brilliant a scholar that he was made
professor of law at the University of Salamanca and eventually became chief
judge of the Inquisition at Granada. He succeeded too well. But he was not
sharp enough a lawyer to prevent a surprising sequence of events.  For more,

Thus says the LORD: Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth;
The things of the past shall not be remembered
or come to mind. ~Isaiah 65:17-21

The royal official said to him, "Sir, come down before my child dies." Jesus
said to him, "You may go; your son will live." The man believed what Jesus
said to him and left. While the man was on his way back, his slaves met him
and told him that his boy would live. ~John 4:43-54

It is best when we fully trust in and rely on God.  The royal official in
today's Gospel wanted Jesus to come and see and heal his son.  Jesus didn't
go, but the official later learned that his son recovered at the very hour
Jesus said, "Your son will live." During this Holy Season we return to the
Lord with all our hearts.  We ask for greater trust in the God who made us,
keeps us in existence and wants the best for us.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may return to God with all my heart.  I pray that I may trust
in God, knowing the He is with me and wants to be with me to help me.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
