One of the many great teachings in the Catholic Tradition is that of redemptive suffering; the teaching that understands that while life includes suffering and there is no way to avoid it, we can offer our suffering to the Lord as a form of prayer with the recognition that by suffering joyfully in this life, we unite ourselves with the suffering of Christ on the cross and the redemption He gave to all through his suffering, death and resurrection.
For this reasons, distance running is one of the most spiritually fruitful exercises as it involves a great deal of pain that we can offer in prayer for the intentions of anyone who asks. And so, this is the place to list those needs. It is our hope that this Run for the Call team not only will help to raise money for seminarians, but also will help those in this Archdiocese to deal with the struggles of their everyday lives.
Please fill out the form below and let us know who to add to our list of intentions as we offer up our pain and suffering for you.
