Seeing a parent age and succumb to dementia can be a very difficult, painful, process. Today on “Catholic to the Core,” I’ve opened up the door to my heart and life a bit to share with you my grappling with my own mother’s dementia.
It's fitting to take a day out to spiritually exalt the Cross upon which our Savior suffered and died for us. He bore so much pain and agony on account of our sins and with a love that is limitless despite our faults and sinfulness! The feast is the occasion for a new beginning, as well, as we resolve to take up our own crosses, given to us by Divine Providence, and carry them forward out of love for Jesus.
