Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

"Her Inner Beauty" Thursday

This a beautiful tradition that happens every year starting tomorrow, the Friday before Palm Sunday, also called "Our Lady of Sorrows Friday" until Good Friday in Spain. It so beautiful to watch. Take the time, watch it with your children. These floats carry statues of our Lady or Our Lord made in the 1500 or so. These floats weight about 300tons and about 60 to 100 men are carrying the floats under. They practice 365 days a year. They leave their church and walk towards the Cathedral of the city and then they turn around. It usually takes 10 hours. Its a high honor to be able to do this as well a way of penances.

The Beauty of the Church lives on!
