The mission statement for Precious Blood Renewal Center declares that this is “a safe and sacred place for healing and hope, reconciliation and renewal.” The challenge we face today is how to invite folks into this sacred place when so many of us are under orders to stay home, to shelter in place and to social distancing.
Because of the COVID-19 emergency, our communal prayer activities have been severely limited.
More than ever, therefore, we feel compelled to offer programs of healing and hope. Technology can help us in our mission.
We begin this new venture today with Episode One of a six-part series of reflections ahead of our Easter celebrations. The goal is to help those who might have come physically to the Renewal Center to have a similar prayerful experience in the confinement of their own homes. In this way, this small way, we can be together.
Over the next three weeks we’ll be posting on Tuesdays and Thursdays mediation exercises prepared by Fr. Ron Will, CPPS. Each video is 10-15 minutes in lengthen.
During the season of Lent, God calls us to turn toward him and develop a more personal relationship. The first episode begins with song by John Foley, “Turn to Me.” Fr. Ron says of this song, “It sets the tone of this reflection and the reflections to come. It also speaks to the anxiety some of us are experiencing because of the corona virus epidemic.”
New videos will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We’ll send you an email on Thursdays to remind you to watch. You can find all the videos here (after they are posted): Lent Video Series. You can share your thoughts about the video on our Facebook page.
