Looking at our decision, I think it makes a great deal of good sense, for us. For those two hours (10 a.m. to Noon), we crochet (or knit or sew) items for the local needy. What better way to focus our thoughts on this memorable morning. We each still have the entire afternoon and evening for more spiritual methods of commemorating this day.
We can comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we are attempting to do his work by making these things for the needy.
Sweet Jesus, tomorrow marks the saddest day in Christendom. Our hearts and souls go out to you and we ask for forgiveness for what you had to do to save us. Thank you for your deep love for all of us, and fill us with love for our fellow humans, that we may follow your lead.
