Welcome To My Journey of A 40 day Pilgrimage of Prayer

I am so happy to have you join me on this 2018 Journey of Contemplating the Cross by Tricia Rhodes.  If you haven’t gotten your book yet and want to join me and others you can purchase it online in book form only from Amazon at  Contemplating the Cross    I hope you were able to start day one on February 14th,   how appropriate to be on Valentine’s Day.  The day of Love.  No greater love than this, our Fathers’ love for us.  

In the introduction of the book Tricia has a line that chills my soul to the bone.  It is:

“Today and every day, God the Father extends an invitation to us.  It is an eternal and unchanging summons to kneel in the shadow of that cross, where He sacrificed His only Son, and make it our souls’ home.”

I hope you have taken her advice and are keeping a journal of your prayers and thoughts.  I agree it will be a treasure.  Sharing with others along this journey will enhance what you are experiencing as much as others will be excited to hear about your discoveries.

In her prayer, Tricia writes

“May He touch your soul and brand you with the fire of His devotion as you contemplate the cross of Christ.”
