Finding A Treasure

A treasure is not something we earn but something we find.

We can spend a lot of our lives wishing and hoping that some treasure will come our way. We can forget that we already possess a wonderful treasure in our loved ones and in the gift of life itself. And the greatest treasure of all is the kingdom of heaven which Jesus freely offers to us.

May we have the wisdom to seek our treasure in God, and not in the glittering goods of a passing world.

Come and join us walk the Way of Sorrows meditating on the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus said to St. Faustina:

"There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion than there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood; the contemplation of My painful wounds is of great profit to you, and it brings Me great joy."

(Compiled by Bishop Peter J. Elliott Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus, Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne)

IN THIS CHALLENGING TIME

Lord Jesus Christ, our true physician and healer,
be merciful to us and bring us your aid in these troubled times.
Heal all our sickness and every affliction of your people.
Drive out our infirmities of soul and body; free us from all disease and especially from this pestilence.
We place in your gentle Heart the elderly, the frail, people with disability, children, young people and families,
our indigenous peoples, those who are poor, lonely and isolated.
As you walk with us, free them from fear, and give them patience and hope together with our loving care.
In your mercy deal also with the causes of our pitiful condition, that in curing our lack of faith and spiritual weakness,
you may also remedy our bodily ills.
We place our trust in you, the risen Lord, who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Amen.
