This is the final video of the 7-part DIVINE LENTEN 2019 WEEKLY VIDEO REFLECTION SERIES. At the top of this post is “TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS” by Rev. Fr. Augustine Vallooran V.C., Director of Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala, India. In this episode of LIVING WATERS, Fr. Augustine explains with holy clarity the mistaken understanding of what suffering is and how suffering should be understood in the context of the Catholic faith.
"When suffering come our way, when fiery ordeals come our way, we should never imagine that an ancestral curse is falling upon us. All of us who are baptized are liberated of all the ancestral curses. Jesus said 'Thank you, Father, for hiding this from the wise and the learned and showing it to the child-like.' Who is the childlike? They are the followers of Christ who surrender their lives to Jesus."
"Brothers and sisters, there is a great mystery being revealed. At the moment I suffer, I am mysteriously connected with Jesus Christ. I am so connected with Jesus, I am given a share of the Cross of Jesus who took all my suffering upon Himself."
On Holy Thursday, a Divine Healing Adoration video by Rev. Fr. Augustine Vallooran V.C.,will be uploaded for us to commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist and its infinite Healing Power.
Please do share this Divine Lenten 2019 Weekly Video Reflection series with your loved ones, prayer groups and friends to make this sacred season of Lent a truly transforming experience in our Christian life.
