During the Triduum, we’re pairing Stations of the Cross at various parishes where Missionaries of the Precious Blood are in ministry with thoughts from Missionaries about Lent, holiness, prayer and our connection to Christ. This station, Jesus is laid in the tomb, is from the outdoor stations in the cemetery at St. Charles Center, Carthagena, Ohio.

From Fr. Bill Nordenbrock, C.PP.S., moderator general of the C.PP.S. worldwide: “We need the help of others to reveal to ourselves who we are in Christ. Who travels with you? Who will take you by the hand and help you find your way? And another question: whom do you companion? Whose hand do you take to help them make their journey? The journey of faith is not one we take alone. It’s not a solo pilgrimage.”

During the Triduum, we’re pairing Stations of the Cross at various parishes where Missionaries of the Precious Blood are in ministry with thoughts from Missionaries about Lent, holiness, prayer and our connection to Christ. This station, Jesus is taken down from the cross, is from Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Montezuma, Ohio.

From Fr. Bill Nordenbrock, C.PP.S., moderator general of the C.PP.S. worldwide: “Can we walk the journey of Jerusalem with Jesus? Have you ever been as confused as the apostles – do we follow Jesus but not really want to go where he goes? Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem and the cross is the template of the journey of faithfulness. If you can’t see some semblance of this in your own journey of faith, you should be really suspicious. I you don’t see some semblance of the need to follow this path, you should ask yourself if you’re really following Jesus. Some giving up of our life for others, always, this is what communion and growth in our relation with God requires. Dying to ourselves, trusting in our resurrection. The way to God is always through the pascal mystery. Always through the resurrection. And like the apostles, it is not the journey I want to take. Yet that is the journey of faithfulness.”

Bells were ringing earlier today in downtown Dayton in solidarity with Notre Dame in Paris. Missionaries are in ministry at Holy Trinity, Emmanuel & St. Joseph Parishes.

Holy Trinity Parish
Did you hear the bells at Holy Trinity this afternoon at 12:43? In solidarity with Notre Dame in Paris the Dayton Downtown Catholic Churches, including Holy Trinity, rung their bells. Here is what Fr. Angelo had to say about it; As Catholics and Christians this Thursday evening we are beginning the holiest time of the liturgical year; The Holy Triduum where we celebrate the Paschal mystery of Jesus’ passion, death, and Resurrection. It is impossible not to share the deep sorrow and prayers of our brothers and sisters who worship at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and all people who are brokenhearted over the fire that occurred in this most sacred place. In solidarity with Notre Dame Cathedral the Dayton Downtown Catholic churches will toll the bells at Holy Trinity, St. Joseph, and Emmanuel at 12:43pm the local time in the U.S. when the fire was discovered. Although these very same bells will fall quiet as the sun sets and Triduum begins, our community will fervently hope and pray for the day when we can celebrate with Notre Dame Cathedral the Resurrection of our Lord with the bells of not only our churches and theirs, but with the entire Communion of Saints. -Fr. Angelo

During the Triduum, we’re pairing Stations of the Cross at various parishes where Missionaries of the Precious Blood are in ministry with thoughts from Missionaries about Lent, holiness, prayer and our connection to Christ. This station, Jesus dies on the cross, is from Immaculate Conception Church in Celina, Ohio.

From Fr. Bill Nordenbrock, C.PP.S., moderator general of the C.PP.S. worldwide: “Did you ever get angry with God and say, ‘Why aren’t you doing what you’re supposed to be doing?’ I hate it when God doesn’t keep to my plans. When things don’t go the way we think they should go—how do we respond? How does that effect you spiritually? Do you ever get angry with God because the journey you thought you were taking doesn’t end up being the journey you are on? Maybe God does know what God is doing. Maybe God should win and we should surrender. Maybe we should trust the journey.

“Where God wants us to be is in God’s own heart. Always, the journey is to the heart of God, to communion & union with God. Are you ready to take the journey? Will you trust the invitation? What journey are you on? What journey are you avoiding?”

During Holy Week, we’re pairing Stations of the Cross at various parishes where Missionaries of the Precious Blood are in ministry with thoughts from Missionaries about Lent, holiness, prayer and our connection to Christ. This station, Jesus is nailed to the cross, is from St. James the Less Church in Columbus.

From Fr. Bill Nordenbrock, C.PP.S., moderator general of the C.PP.S. worldwide: “It’s a humbling experience to recognize your own humanity, your own frailty, in relationship to God. In scriptures they talk about fear of the Lord. But it’s not about being fearful: it’s about that sense of awesomeness that sets you back and fills you with awe. That’s what the phrase ‘fear of the Lord’ means in the Scriptures. It means we recognize God’s power and wonder. It humbles us, and because it humbles us there’s a need for a second encounter, when God says, ‘I’m here for you.’ When we’ve been opened up and we’re ready to see and hear the truth, God comes to us. God says, ‘You see yourself as lowly but I see you as my son, my daughter. I see one I love.’”
