Let me give a big shout out to the Why Catholic Parish Team at St. Rose of Lima! This parish will join their compatriots in the Central Deanery South and throughout the diocese for Year 2: The Profession of Faith. Standing in for Sr. Pat Thomas, I recently had the privilege of presenting the Launch Workshop to this faith-filled group. During the workshop, we reflected on the parable of The Pearl of Great Price and shared experiences of our dear Lord’s superabundance in our lives. In the gospel reading for the 5th Sunday of Lent, Jesus asks Martha, “Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?” God continually surprises us with new life. This week, we feature ValLimar Jansen’s DVD: “Inspired Volume 2 – Stories and Songs Inspired by the Scriptures.” Catechists will remember this remarkable singer and storyteller from Faith Formation Day two years ago. In We Rolled Away the Stone, ValLimar retells the Lazarus story from Martha’s perspective. We feel her grief and witness God’s superabundance through her eyes. “Lazarus, come out!” In addition to this story, Volume 2 contains: The Loving Father (The Parable of the Prodigal and His Brother); His Healing Touch (A Woman Healed); Judas Said to Mary (The Anointing at Bethany); and Listen to the People of Jericho (Jericho Taken and Destroyed). “Inspired Volume 1” includes: The Creation, The Samaritan Woman, The Healing Pool, and A Man Born Blind. A Leaders guide, with story summaries, faith sharing questions and helpful tips for faith formation sessions, accompanies each title. Order these DVDs or call Dan Hardester or Diane Gallagher@ 407-246-4895 (or 4897) for collaboration in your ministry.
