Update from Fr. Chris Herman, St. Lazarus Mission
On the 4th of April, Debora Weaver, whom most people call Grandma Weaver, asked me if she could be baptized. She has been attending services at Crossroads Care Center in Vandalia, Ohio.
Crossroads is the facility where eight of our parishioners of the Livingston Diaspora were sent and where we followed to be sure they had continued pastoral care, and when we found there was none to be had, we began a parish plant post haste. This is no small matter in the normal course of events, and considering the vicious opposition we meet in the facility from the forces of the evil one — who do not even bother any longer to hide their presence but rather reveal themselves often to parishioners, staff members, and to me and to Carol in open warfare — we are definitely taking ground and holding it, declaring to the heavens that Jesus Christ is Lord and His rule is “here to stay.” Nevertheless, the conflict is altogether bothersome and it makes for difficult slogging through the spiritual warfare, which I believe to be real and substantially unrelenting and it apparently comes at us in every sphere of our lives. My parishioners need your prayers as do all of us in the mission work.
So, getting back to Grandma Weaver…
