In the cement of the Holy Cross for Priests, on the 4 ends, we put St. Benedict medals & Miraculous medals. Near the base, a scapular. At the very top we put my husband's St. Benedict Cross on a string, then a triangular piece of brick from Ascension of Our Lord Church in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, the site of the first priests' Ordination in Louisiana. Next we put a small white Rosary blessed by Pope John Paul II that was a gift to claire rose from a holy priest, a triangular piece of marble from the floor of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. At the very center, Mr. Darrell Guidry from Larose, Louisiana, the man who designed the Cross, put in a priests collar from his Pastor, a Divine Love Rosary made by Leslie Therese`, a 3rd class relic of Padre Pio, a picture of an old painting of St. Eloi ( the Saint this parish in Theriot is named after), a small angel from St. Jude Shrine. On the reverse side of St. Eloi's picture is a memorial picture of our Late Pastor & friend of our mission, Fr. Jerome Weber & the prayer of St. Francis. Blessed salt & Holy Water was sprinkled into & around the Cross.
We had a blessed day. Almost all those who helped build this Cross are physically disabled. God uses our brokeness and puts the gifts & talents of all together to fulfill His Plan. I am reminded of the day Our Mother asked for this cross to be built & how my husband looked tired when he first heard of it. I remember saying to him that Our Mother would send others to help. She always keeps Her Promises.
Some of the wives came to help me cook fried oysters & shrimp. From these we made sandwiches on french bread that we call "poor boys" here on the bayou in south Louisiana. We will always remember this St. Patrick's Day.
