Day 8 – July 2014

Early this morning, the participants woke up and went into Cambridge to break bread with our less fortunate neighbors. In small groups, the CrossRoaders approached homeless people, bought them breakfast, and sat and ate with them, learning about their lives and getting to know them. It was an extremely moving experience for all. It is very profound to acknowledge Christ in the face of the neighbor that we often overlook.

After a nap, the participants engaged in the staff-led session, “Life-Giving Relationships”. Tonight, they encountered the saints in a very personal staff-led session and then venerated the relics of many saints in our chapel at Holy Cross.

It is beautiful to watch the participants learn how to take all of the information they have received over the past week and put it into action by serving their neighbor!
