Visiting prison: Tarcissius! Prayers for Father Gordon MacRae and Pornchai

In the last moments before leaving Rome I made it out to Saint Lawrence’s Outside the Walls. This is in the Blessed Sacrament chapel below the altar: Saint Tarcissius. Or am I wrong? This little boy was commissioned by the Pope (who would be forthwith martyred in the catacombs) to bring the Blessed Sacrament to prisoners at the Coliseum. He was doing this…

He was doing this when he was smashed down and beaten to death by some other boys who wanted whatever it was he was carrying. They could not wrench it from his hands, even in death.

I felt compelled to pray for Fr Gordon MacRae and Pornchai here. Will you join me with some prayers for them? It’s like taking the good example of Saint Tarcissius…

Angel of God…

Hail Mary…

Saint Michael the Archangel…

Adoration in the parish. Early early!

The parish has Eucharistic Adoration every Sunday morning from 6:00-7:00 AM at Holy Redeemer. After spending the first 15 minutes in adoration, I head to the Confessional in back of the Church and hear Confessions. The church is pretty tiny, but very devotional, if you will. The ceiling is no higher than the crucifix above the tabernacle. I had a second to take this picture. It makes for good memories. I love this little parish to pieces.
