Children's Rosary Today at St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross Parish in Lawrenceburg, Indiana

The Children's Rosary at St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross Parish in Lawrenceburg, Indiana will meet at 6:30 PM CST today.  Please consider joining the children in prayer as it really means so much to them to know others are praying with them at the same time around the world.  The litttle children always lift up in prayer, all those that are unifying prayers with them.  

The children are meeting at St. Theresa Benedicta of the Cross Parish.  It is inspiring to reflect on the life of this Saint especially as we start Lent tomorrow and begin our journey with the Lord to Calvary.

St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross exemplifies so many beautiful virtues.  She died a virgin and bride of Christ.  She faced suffering and death with courage and love of Christ Crucified.  As a Catholic Jew from the Netherlands she was taken to the concentration camp Aushwitz where she was put to death in the gas chambers.  Shortly before her deportation she spoke of possible rescue, “Do not do it! Why should I be spared? Is it not right that I should gain no advantage from my Baptism? If I cannot share the lot of my brothers and sisters, my life, in a certain sense, is destroyed”. Pope John Paul II said of St. Teresa in his canonization homily “the new Saint teaches us that love for Christ undergoes suffering. Whoever truly loves does not stop at the prospect of suffering: he accepts communion in suffering with the one he loves”.
