Late Sunday afternoon, we walked back over to San Theresa o’ San Jose and met with Archbishop O’Brien.
Our group was joined my the young women of Mount De Sales as well.
He harkened back to Pope Benedict’s words earlier in the day: We cannot follow Jesus on our own. Anyone who would be tempted to do so “on his own”, or to approach the life of faith with that kind of individualism so prevalent today, will risk never truly encountering Jesus, or will end up following a counterfeit Jesus.
As we had not been able to receive Eucharist at the closing mass, we moved over to the Church for a short Communion Service with Father Austin, A Dominican travelling with the MdS girls. Archbishop O’Brien offered closing comments and a blessing.
