A heart-lifter!

This week there was an article on the New Advent web site about a little boy.  When you opened the news item you were directed to scroll down on the page and have a look at a video that was there.  The video was of an interview with an 11-year-old English boy named Garvan Byrne.  Our Sisters were so touched by it that I decided to send it along to my family.  My sister commented that when she watched it she cried - not tears of sadness but tears of joy.  Garvan died some years ago but his story is timeless!  He knew Jesus and his hope was in the Resurrection! And as we look forward to the Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict think of Garvan; he was a boy who believed!    Please have a look - the video is about 5 minutes long.  You will be glad you did.

You might also like to listen to Father Robert Barron's homily for this Sunday (4th Sunday of Easter).

God bless!
