Photopost: Family of Terry Schiavo leads reflection at Assumption Grotto

Click pic to visit

This past Sunday, the family of Terri Schiavo - her brother, Bobby Schindler; mother, Mary; and her sister Suzanne Schindler Vitadamo - offered reflections using the Stations of the Cross on "Overcoming Suffering". 

This is something that they offer during Lent and there is no doubt that those in attendance were moved deeply by their humble reflections.   Devotions weaved into it were among the most timeless, referencing the Blessed Virgin Mary throughout. You can request them to speak at your parish or event (see details here), but these specific meditations are only scheduled during Lent.

I myself was moved by their humility and their application of the most basic Christian principles to the fight for Terri's life, and her following her death, from abandoning themselves to the will of God to forgiveness. Now they work to teach and enlighten others.

Here are some photos taken during the event which followed the Noon Mass on April 10, 2011.
