Happy New [Liturgical] Year! Here's some inspiration to start your new year!
This is the talk Pilgrim George gave at the annual Eparchy of Parma pilgrimage at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch on August 17. In this talk, Pilgrim George takes the examples of Bartimaeus (blind), Zacchaeus (up a tree), and Lazarus (dead in the tomb), to show us that we are all spiritually lost and in need of God.
"Jesus came to earth to show us how to worship, love & serve the Father...so we come together on pilgrimage to purify our hearts, to allow ourselves to make that total surrender of our lives to the Lord."
"Everything we do is meant to change OUR hearts--to be like the heart of Jesus...so that we are no longer blind."
