Pope: Life of St Teresa of Avila Can Help Renew Consecrated Life

Grieving the loss of a loved one is a very challenging process. The normal grieving time for a significant loss is three to five years, with the second year being the most difficult. This process of grief will be done in a healthy or unhealthy way. In order to help those that are grieving, Cathedral will be offering a five-week course on grief education and support. The classes are open to the public, and will begin Wednesday, April 8 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, in the Multipurpose Room. To register for the classes, please call Bridget Leighton at 724-8597.
When I go to Rome, my favorite place to say Mass is over the tomb of St. John Paul the Great in St. Peter’s Basilica. Being inspired by him and having had the opportunity to meet him make that altar particularly important to me.
In my years of priesthood I have been blessed to celebrate Mass in many important holy places. I have said Mass near the tombs of Sts. Peter and Paul and in the room where St. Catherine of Sienna died. I have prayed Mass at the tomb of Jesus in Jerusalem, near the cave where he was born in Bethlehem, not to mention in Fatima, Portugal, Lourdes, France and at St. John’s in Duluth!
At the end of Pope Francis’ spontaneity-filled meeting with priests, seminarians and religious in the cathedral of Naples, the vial of dried blood of the city’s patron saint appeared to miraculously liquefy.
After Pope Francis blessed the congregation with the reliquary holding the vial, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe of Naples announced, “As a sign that St. Januarius loves the pope, who is Neapolitan like us, the blood is already half liquefied.”
