Dear Friends,
Further reflections from the pilgrimage to Philadelphia.

“The moment I heard Cathy talk about the pilgrimage I knew I had to go with my family no matter what! I came home and told my family all about it and they did not seem as enthusiastic as I thought they would be, especially my two girls. I tried to explain to them what the Holy Father stands for, and what Pope Francis was all about. And as a Catholic, in these changing times, how important religion is in life.

When I was a young girl, my grandmother and Aunt took to me see Rev. Billy Graham at Giant Stadium. It was electrifying. I wanted my children to have that same experience too! Seeing the Pope was truly a blessing for us. My oldest daughter, who gave me so much flack about going, turned to me and said, ‘thank you, mommy, I had the best time. This was special. I am glad we came.’ That was all I needed to hear. Kerry Olson

“I don’t even know where to begin!!!! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for the most amazing weekend I ever had. The entire experience was incredible and to share it with my children and especially my mom along with 205 other new friends was great.”
Peg Chanod

The children were asked for their reactions, based on several questions. Below are some of the questions, with their responses: What is something Pope Francis did or said that makes you want to be closer to God?

“His care for the poor encourages my faith.”
Joe

”He said that we should pray for him and to change the world through Christian families.”
Catherine

“He talked about how much poor there is in the world and that makes me want to go on more mission trips.”
Ali

“He kissed a baby and it made me want to become Pope as I can kiss babies someday.”
Timmy

“After attending the event I want to have a family someday and pass on my faith and our church’s traditions.”
Katherine


Another question was, “How did this trip make you feel about being a Catholic”?


“This trip made me feel closer to God and my Catholic brothers and sisters. It was cool to see everyone come together from all over the world just to see the Pope.”
Nicole

“It made me feel great – like I was part of something big.”
Callie

“I usually thought being a Catholic was more like an alternative aspect of life, but now I realize it is the center of my life.”
Emma

“Awesome. Absolutely wonderful.”
Meg


Couldn’t have said it better.
God Bless,
Fr. Ron
