I'm home! I posted this info yesterday but something went wrong and it wasn't there this morning so here is the scoop.
At Dr. Timothy O'Donnell's talk on Wednesday, he referred people to the Sacred Heart Apostolate booth. Well, Shannon was covering the table so everyone else could attend Mass with Msgr. Esseff and Fr. Gaffney and she got hammered! But what a joyful hammering! She was handing out packets left and right and sharing the joys of Enthronement to the Sacred Heart.
The Thursday morning Mass was wonderful and the background to the altar was the Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. There were two children's choirs and if you are Facebook friends with me, I will be posting a video up there.
We still had people coming up who were referred from the talk. Part of the group went to St. Rita's Shrine for a catechesis on the Sacred Heart Enthronement and a healing service with our two priests. Kathleen McCarthy, Anna Iatesta and I manned the table for that time. Until we got word that there was going to be a lockown and all cars would be prevented from moving within a grid that included our hotel. So it was get out of town now or stay through Monday. All hands tore down the booth, packed up and left Philly. Bob Moore was doing all the hard, heavy stuff for which we are grateful.
So here are the last of the pictures from the World Meeting of Families. A couple of special notes. The children posing with the Sacred Heart Image are from the Children's Rosary program - http://childrensrosary.blogspot.com/p/how-to-start-childrens-rosary.html. And the pictures with the banners for Formed and Beloved are from Augustine Institute. Those are products offered now as part of a great digital package through Lighthouse Catholic Media.
This set of pictures is in a slideshow so view away. It was a wonderful experience and we are grateful to God for the many blessings we received.
