The Sign of the Cross
When someone is ill, nearing death, or in emotional or psychological turmoil,
the evil one is often there
trying to disturb what little peace the person can claim.
The person who is being disturbed may feel helpless in the face of the attack,
or unable to recognize the source of the disturbance.
There is something that you can do to help
that is simple and powerful:
The Sign of the Cross.
If the person is unable to do it for themselves,
then you can do it for them---frequently.
Use Holy Water or Blessed Oil if you have it.
And when you make the Sign of the Cross,
ask Jesus to place His Hand on yours,
so that He and you can bless the person together,
claiming that person as His own.
God willing, it will help them to feel more peaceful.
We can do the same thing for ourselves.
Imagine taking His Hand in your hand and placing it on your forehead,
over your heart and wherever you feel pain or anxiety.
Allow His Hand to caress you, strengthen you,
and help you with all you do.
Jesus loves you.
He is always there for you, whether you sense it or not.
He wants to bring you His Peace.

We are sad to report that due to the severe weather this weekend
and out of precaution for the safety of all involved,
this retreat has been cancelled. There was a great response to this retreat which makes it more difficult to cancel. We offer this disappointment to Our Lord and pray that He blesses the retreatants and their intentions.

"Jesus, I trust in You" 20X
In a recent column entitled "When Satan Torments the Mind," Msgr. Stephen Rossetti provides a list of weapons with which to do battle against Satan. Among the weapons was this:
+Turn to Jesus- repeatedly. Regularly using short exclamatory prayers can help focus the mind on Jesus. Typical prayers are: "Jesus I trust in you" or "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me a sinner" or "Jesus, Mary" or another short holy prayer of your own choosing.

In this, our 20th Anniversary Year, we invite our friends to say
"Jesus, I trust in You," 20 times a day. And push Satan away!
