Today’s Gospel: John 6:52-59 (The Bread of Life Discourse)
Pondering these thoughts today: What meaning does the Crucified Cross of Jesus have in your life? I’d like you to try this most powerful exercise. I promise you may need to have tissues nearby. Either do this at home if you have a Crucified Cross of Jesus or go to your church and sit before the Cross there. Once the time is right and it’s just you and Jesus upon the Cross. Look at the cross and stare at the nails and think about your sins and ask Jesus to forgive you. Continue to stare at those nails and tell Jesus how much you love Him. Slowly, pray the Our Father, the Glory Be and the O My Jesus prayer (all Rosary Prayers) … repeat this entire exercise as many times as it takes till you feel it in your heart. You’ll understand that once you continue. Blessings my friends.
Your brother in Christ Jesus
And His Most Blessed Mother,

Rosary Man Jim’s Sorrowful Reflection: http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-sorrowful-mysteries_11.html
I share this meditation I wrote back in 2010. Here I share my own personal insight and experience, as I journey with our Lady from station to station.
Many Franciscan groups around the world use this for their own group gathering while they meditate the Stations with our Lady. http://beads-of-joy-blog.blogspot.com/2010/03/marys-way-of-cross.html It is unique and emotionally very moving as you move from station to station… From my heart to yours.
