Missions are wonderful if you have a good mission master.
We had Father Emerito from India do one for us last year. It was outstanding. He preached on the hard hitting topics: abortion, marriage fidelity, drugs and other addictions. He was just outstanding. Heard confessions before Mass, after Mass, in the evening before the Mission, after the Mission, by appointment........I think almost everyone went to confession. He was so holy!
Here are the sorrows ---
The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary are,
the prophecy of Simeon;
the flight into Egypt;
losing Jesus in Jerusalem;
meeting Jesus on his way to Calvary;
standing at the foot of the Cross;
Jesus being taken from the Cross;
and the burial of Christ.
That looks like it will be perfect before Lent or during Lent.

Thanks, Salvation! I am really looking forward to a good Lent. So often I make big resolutions which never come to fruition. Sure hope I do better this year!
