Special evening at Summer Camp - Carrying the Cross followed by Mass and Eucharistic Adoration!

What might it have been like for Jesus to carry his cross almost 2,000 years ago on the road to Calvary?  Jesus wants us to meditate on his Passion so that we might better understand how much the Lord suffered for each and every human being ever created by God now and until the end of time. 

Our Timber Wolves, Explorers and Leaders carried around a life sized cross together to help like Simon did, to pray, to reflect on the Lord's passion.  See the photo's below... it was and continues to be a very moving experience that helps draw each and every one of us ever closer to Jesus our Saviour!

We started off in a procession with our FSE/FNE flag leading us on our journey that would take us back to be with Jesus at the last supper through the Holy Mass that would follow and then to pray as we were with him in the Garden of Gethsemane by being with Jesus through Eucharistic Adoration.

 

There was little talking amongst the Explorers leading the procession followed by the Timber Wolves as they contemplated what happened less then 2,000 years ago...on that Good Friday...

As we processed throughout camp... the sun shined directly through the trees and bathed the cross with light... representing the Holy Spirit which is the source of all faith knowledge... come Holy Spirit... open our minds... help us understand a little better.. as to the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Praying and singing together...

 

Big or small... it mattered not... all took turns holding the cross with some struggling more then others...

It was such a big cross just like the one Jesus had to carry all by himself... how did our Lord do it after been scourged, beaten, hit, and wearing a crown of thorns...


Andy says... Jesus I love you so much and I am so sad that you had to suffer so much for us your children...

Lord - I may not be very tall but I want to help you and therefore others carry their cross too - please let me...

Lord... its so very heavy but I want to do my part to help lift high the cross too....

Lord... now that I am an Explorer... I am ready to grow closer to you... I am listening... what do you want from me... as a good and faithful FNE Explorer please give me the courage to do your will and not mine...

As brothers from Canada and the USA we stand together to help and grow in our faith.... I love You Jesus!

Our Father....thy Kingdom Done...thy will be done...

Harti reflects on your passion Lord... thank you for this special time and opportunity for us all to be together..

As leaders we too have a cross to carry and we too want and need to help others carry their cross....

We now arrive for Holy Mass and Eucharistic Adoration.... as the Holy Spirit opened many of our minds to better understand how much Jesus loves us and a little bit more about the Lords suffering...look at the faces of our youth... it says it all...

Jesus we are listening to each and every word that you speak through the scriptures and look in awe as to what takes place during each and every Holy Mass especially this one...

Jesus... what can I say... Father Thomas will soon be available to hear confessions... we got to get right with you... to have our sins forgiven and start anew... thank you Jesus for your Mercy and Love!

Jesus... it's me Dong Hwi... I listen to your every word... I want you to know that I love you with all that I have, with all of my mind, heart and soul... and I know that you love me... because I am here with you today!

Lord please help me to continue to be a good timber wolf... please keep the evil one away from me, my timber wolf brothers and family... please continue to love me and protect me... thank you Jesus!

Jesus... I love to be your servant by helping serve at Holy Mass - thank you!

Helping Father at the Altar - thank you... I try to do my best to set a good example for my brother timber wolves to follow as they (and Jesus) are watching my every move... please help me Jesus be pleasing to you

Through Eucharistic Adoration Jesus is truly present... we can now pray to him, talk to him, look at him and he looks at us... Jesus thank you for being with us in this special way at our camp... what an awesome gift for us all... there is a huge line up for confession... after all how can we not go... by going we get even closer to you...
