When Words Fail

I have been wrestling with the recent revelations of the horrible abuse that has been happening in the Church. Many people, much more educated than myself, have written a lot about what needs to be done and what we can do. I am just going to share what I am going to do, and welcome you to join me. I will be honoring the days of fasting on today Aug. 22 The Queenship of Mary, and Aug 29th, the Passion of St. John The Baptist, as well as taking my kids to Adoration on those days. There are many other prayers, fasting, and ideas for how to better enter into this time of reparation. I will do my best to enter into this time with my family for the healing of the victims and their families.  

I will be offering up, as much as I can, my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings through the month of September for the families who have suffered, most especially the victims of this abuse, as well as their mothers. Words cannot express my sorrow for what these families have had to endure, and perhaps my little offering can help give them the love and grace they may need. Please prayerfully consider what you and your family can do.

Here is a link to Catholic All Year, author Kendra Tierney has some beautiful ideas as well.
