"As you go through this week, let it be truly holy. Take time to imagine what Jesus was going through during this time. Turn off the television and spend some time in silent prayer. Go to confession, and participate in the liturgies on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil. This Holy Week, walk with Jesus."
The Resurrection of Jesus is the most important event in human history. It is also the most unique: never before had a person been physically dead and come back in a new and astonishingly different bodily form. Nothing like the Resurrection has happened since, though as Christians we await Jesus’ second coming when our bodies will rise and be transformed like his.
St. Francis is a Jesuit Mission on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota.
Francis is a ministry of the of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits)
among the 20,000 Lakota people on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in
south-central South Dakota. It was founded in 1886. The Mission is a
not-for-profit organization. We are supported by gifts of those who
share our mission to serve the spiritual, educational, and physical
needs of Lakota Catholics and those who are un- churched
on the reservation. The three Jesuits priests and one Jesuit Brother
work with a team made up of a Lakota Deacon, seven commissioned Lakota
Lay Ministers and numerous Lakota lay men and women who make the work of
the Church possible. St. Francis Mission works in cooperation with
Bishop Robert D. Gruss of the Diocese of Rapid City.
