The Road of Lent

Dear Associates and All People of Good Will, 

Whenever we walk into a Lenten Season, we are invited for change. We can plan our resolutions, but still some events will suprise us along the way. But we can risk the road because we have the tremendous assurance that God goes with us on the journey. As we journey with Jesus during the Holy Lent, let us keep before our eyes the gift of His great love ... His life in exchange for ours. We trust that there will be enough strenght and beauty amid all the pain to sustain us and to urge us forward. We trust that on the road we will come to know Jesus, the Divine Redeemer better and grow in holiness.

Our meeting will be held on Sunday, March 11, 2018. Registration is at 1:15 p.m. and the program begins at 1:30 p.m. at the Motherhouse. To prepare for this meeting, please complete the following:


  1. Thoughtfully read one of the accounts of the Passion from either Mattew, Mark, Luke, or John.
  2. Thoughtfully read Isaiah 52:13-115 and 53:1-12 about the passion.
  3. Reflect on how Christ's Passion has influenced your life.
  4. Write a note of love and gratitude to Jesus. 
As you prepare for this time and reflect on Christ's love, enter more deeply into this sacred time.
Please plan on coming and bring your friend. 

Prayerfully,
Sister Monica

The Passion of Christ

The holy season of Lent begun on March 1, 2017 with Ash Wednesday. As the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer and their Associate Members we are invited to walk more closely with the Divine Redeemer during this time. To enter into this sacred time, the Associate Meeting was held on Sunday, March 12, 2017 at the Motherhouse.

The theme of this meeting were the Stations of the Cross, according to Msgr. David Rosage. The words of meditation on each station were accompany with power-point presentation, the pictures of every-day life. The answers on the question, "If you were to carve of the 14 stations, what is the one word you would carve for each station of the cross?" were spontaneously, interesting, enriching, worthy of consideration, ... A beautiful display helped us to meditate on the Passion of Jesus Christ more deeply. 

The prayer service followed the Stations of the Cross. Each Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary was dispayed by symbol.
  1. First Mystery: Statue of Jesus by the rock.
  2. Second Mystery: The whip.
  3. Third Mystery: Crown of thorns.
  4. Fourth Mystery: Statue of Jesus carrying His cross.
  5. Fifth Mystery: Nails and the cross with candles. 
There were meditation and thoughts of Mother Alphonse Marie before each mystery of the rosary and we sung the refrain: "Here am I Lord, I've come to do your will." These words, to do God's will, now became the refrain of our life.

There are times when words cannot possibly express our deepest feeling of empathy, but our presence speaks volumes. We become channels of Jesus' loving concern by permitting to flow through us to our brothers and sisters who are in need.
