OLM Parent Bulletin

Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Reflecting on Jesus’ passion naturally creates a moment of sorrow in us. It saddens us to see Jesus suffer and be mistreated so much. But it can also help us. We can look at the cross and ask God to help us be more forgiving—just as Jesus was. “Lord, help me to be like you.”
