The Friday Five: Encountering Christ, Encountering Virtue

This week, as we prepare for the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, we remember, as Pope Francis says, that “Each man and woman has a personal encounter with the Lord. A true and actual encounter that can radically change one’s life. The secret lies not only in being aware of it, but also in never forgetting it, so as to preserve its freshness and beauty.”

Don’t forget to be praying for Pope Francis’ intentions for the month of August.

If the recent investigative videos into Planned Parenthood have caused anyone to experience revived trauma from their own involvement in abortion, be assured that any and all persons will be welcomed with compassion and assistance through the Church’s post-abortion healing ministry, Project Rachel, Help after Abortion.


Please also consider reading and sharing Bishop Loverde’s column, printed in the Arlington Catholic Herald on this topic.
