EASTER JOY: Let's Make a Little Trouble

Today we embark on a spiritual pilgrimage to the National Shrine of the Baslica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Our Diocese has organizied a pilgrimage to the National Shrine. Our Marianist high schools will fill three buses and participate with the Diocese.

Fr. Robert Baron has great words about a pilgrimage. He writes, "a secularized culture wants us to beleive that processions and pilgrimages are somehow inappropriate, sectarian, troublemaking. I think we should make a little trouble."

So, we are off to "make a little trouble" today. Yes, we will socialize on the bus, eat, pray, sing songs, explore the vast Basilica and celebrate the Eucharist. Not a bad day at that. Wish you came with us!
