DIVINE MERCY DAILY REFLECTIONS (Jesus speaking to St. Faustina in bold print; from the Diary of St. Faustina)


A Deep Peace

First day. Jesus: My daughter, this retreat will be an uninterrupted contemplation. I will bring you into this retreat as into a spiritual banquet. Close to My merciful Heart, you will meditate upon all the graces your heart has received, and a deep peace will accompany your soul (Diary, 1327).

Please pray for the repose of the souls of James George, Jerry Viator, Kenneth Delcambre and Paul Dale LeBlanc.

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, November 18-26, 2016

Join Fr. Bill Melancon and Deacon Tim Marcantel on a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  In a real way, making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land draws us closer to Jesus of Nazareth.  The Scriptures will come alive as we visit Our Lord's homeland, and each day, we will have time to re-new and affirm our faith -- to pray and reflect.  The group will visit Nazareth, Cana, Mount of Beatitudes, Holy Sepulchre and much more. For more information, call 337-291-1933.
