Lenten Recollection in Sanford with Fr. Elias, O.S.B.

March 23 - March 24, 2019
St. Thomas More Church, Sanford - FL
The entombment in the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Chaource, France - 1515.

Come and listen to Fr. Elias, O.S.B. who will explain how to make our sufferings a way to unite us with Jesus’ Passion, following our Mother’s example.

Suffering is very present in our life. How can we relay and connect our own sufferings with those of Our Lord and of Our Lady?
Our Lady is the best example of union to the Passion of Christ. How did God prepare her to unite herself to the sufferings of the Cross?
