In Vancouver and area are groups of Catholic teens and young adults, called Youth for Christ! I was invited to join one such group on a Saturday afternoon for some prayer and some fun.
We asked the question, “How do I click with this Icon? – Our Mother of Perpetual Help.” Using the prayers of St. Alphonsus, we learned to gaze upon Mary and her son Jesus, and to speak to Mary like a friend.
Somebody please make sure that Brother Dan Korn C.Ss.R., our resident expert on this Icon of Love, is sitting down when he sees this. He will be blown away to know that young people took time out of their busy lives to venerate the Icon of our Mother of Perpetual Help!
