We were given gifts to act upon

By Dan and Lydia Kray

 We were so looking forward to gathering with over a million Catholics to get more excited and learn more about our faith. We found that and much more!

 We were most moved by the main message of “ Love is our Mission.” We experienced it in the people there, even while waiting six hours in line with thousands of people. We all were at peace just waiting and singing hymns to our Lord while in line all that time.

 

 Then, after seeing and taking in our Holy Father’s messages, we now have a profound renewal of our faith in the Catholic Church, its clergy and body, and especially in the family - the domestic church.

 The best way we can describe this week is that each event has given us gifts to now act upon: gifts of Love, Grace, Peace, Compassion, Service, Respect and Hope for the whole world, where Love is now our permanent mission.
