Thank you for supporting me spiritually and financially this Easter during my pilgrimage to Rome. The focus was truly on being in the heart of the Church and fostering community. The group of nine from Canada who traveled with me were surrounded by over a thousand other catholic students. They’d all traveled to Rome for Holy Week and we heard many inspiring conversion stories. The faith and hope of the entire group was re-awakened and we were challenged to rethink our futures with the Lord’s will in mind.
He is calling us in every moment and this beautiful trip really helped me deepen my faith.
It encouraged me to actively seek the Lord in ever moment “for he is not far from anyone one of us.” (Acts 17:27) We also had the opportunity to visit many of the churches of Rome, the Colosseum, the forum, the Vatican, museums and pizzerias! We were blessed to attend Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday Mass with Pope Francis in St. Peter’s, and also had an audience with the Pope on Wednesday of Holy Week. Thanks again for making this trip possible! You are all in my prayers.
