The online
survey will end on March 6, 2015. For those who

dioceses of Canada.
Lenten Day of Reflection: "Embracing the Cross of
Christ" with Deacon Bill Gervais. Tuesday, March

reflection will use the fourteen Stations of the Cross
as a template to explore how each of these
episodes of the suffering of Jesus might apply to the
sufferings in our present world and our life
situation. For each station there will be time for
prayerful reflection, meditation and discussion on
related issues, especially the second beatitude
which promises, “Blessed are those who mourn for
they will be comforted.”
