Eucharistic Healing Mission: - Fr. Peter Byrne C.Ss.R. "Jesus, come and walk among us" Have you ever heard those words and then waited while Christ in the Blessed Sacrament was carried towards you and raised before you in blessing? This is the experience that awaits you at the Mission. Do you carry secret anger, secret hurts, secret guilt? Do memories from the past haunt you and take away your peace? Have you lost your way in life? Has life itself become meaningless for you? Do you see no escape from the hatred in your heart towards someone? Are you sick in mind or body or spirit? Come and let Jesus bless and heal you. Come and receive the blessing, not only for yourself, but also for a wounded world in need of divine healing. Through some 16 years of conducting EUCHARISTIC HEALING MISSIONS, I have seen wonderful things happen in people's lives through the blessing of Christ. Come and see for yourself. Say YES to this call of Christ and come.
