About a month or so back, I was sitting in my bedroom and I looked up at the wall and remembered randomly of a crucifix that I used to have years ago hanging in that particular spot that I had gotten as a child. I realized "Where is it?... What happened to it?... Wait. That used to be the only crucifix in the whole house when I was a kid." And with that thought I had a very strong desire to get a crucifix since I did not have one.
I then posted to Facebook about this desire and everyone started referring me to websites, etc where I could get one. None of them seemed to work for me....
Recently I have gained a very strong devotion to John Paul the 2nd. I read the other day about JP2 doing the stations of three cross, and to be honest other than on Good Friday I have never really done that particular prayer. I felt inspired to go over this book of the stations that I have for kids with Christian and Saturday night I prayed the stations with him, my girlfriend Janet and my sister Zsanelle.
Sunday morning I went to mass at St. Theresa's instead of at my parish Santa Maria. As I walked out, I saw crucifixes in the gift shop and thought "Huh... I wonder." Approaching the gift shop the first thing I saw was a statue of JP2 and something just felt right. I picked two crucifixes on the wall and asked Christian to make the final decision on which one we should get. He chose the one I post here which I bought along with this JP2 coin. Thanks JP2. I really feel you led me to this one, and I feel this a new step closer for me to enter into the mystery of Christ's crucifixion.
Please pray for the holiness of me and my family, and through these two simple instruments may the Heavenly Father continue to draw us to our holiness.
