Rediscover the Saints:  Have you ever heard of St. Roch or St. Rocco?  He lived during the 13th Century and went
on a pilgrimage 

to Rome
devoting himself to caring for the victims of a plague that was ravaging Italy.  He became a victim himself at Piacenza 

but recovered and was reputed to have performed many miracles of healing.  


Dcn John Stroop passed along some Holy Week recommendations available on FORMED:

(1) Triduum, A Spiritual Journey, takes us, with reflections, to the beautiful sites of the Passion and Resurrection in Jerusalem.

(2) The Jewish Roots of Holy Week, Dr. Brant Pitre.

(3) Formed Live, a daily bible study for Holy Week.
