Feast of the Glorious Wounds of Christ

Friday 24th April 2009 is the Passionist Feast of the Glorious Wounds of Christ.

Lord Jesus Christ, your hands, feet and side were pierced and flowed with blood for the world’s salvation. The wounds in your risen body strengthened the faith of the apostles in your glorious resurrection. Deepen our devotion to these proofs of your love and unite us more closely to your passion, so that we may rise with you to newness of life, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

    I am very fond of oyur blog. When I first was drawn to the Catholic faith I was very much drawn toward the passionists. Christ’s passion is very tightly knit to my own conversion, since I opened my heart to Him during Holy week five years ago.

    I’m from Sweden myself, a pretty harsh country for Catholics (and Christians in general) but have a lot of friends all over the world and find great joy in visiting different countries.
