A Franciscan friend, Diane Menditto, OFS shared a holy tradition passed down from her mother’s family. I liked the tradition so much that I wanted to share it with all of you. On Holy Saturday at 12 noon visit each room of your house and open the window
“Lord Jesus Christ, remove from this house
And my heart all anger and bitterness.
Cast out all evil through this open window,
And come into my home as a most welcome guest.
Fill this house and my heart with
The fresh air of your love and
The healing power of your Resurrection.
Remember, also, those who have gone
Before us in faith, especially _____,
That they may rejoice with you
In Paradise this Easter.”
REPEAT THE PROCESS IN EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE. Thank you, Diane, for passing on such a lovely tradition with all of us. If any of you have traditions you would like to share, please do.
Have a Happy and Blessed Holy Week! DAWN
