“The Sufferings of Mary as a Bridge to Jesus” – Father David Dufresne
Suffering can feel isolating. We think we are suffering alone. Sometimes our lives don’t mirror our expectations, especially during the holidays. Father David Dufresne, Parochial Vicar at the Basilica of Saint Mary, reflects on how meditating on the Seven Sorrows of Mary can be a bridge to Jesus. This talk was recorded on December 14, 2019.
Founded in 1795, the Basilica of Saint Mary in Old Town Alexandria is the first Catholic parish established in Virginia. Pope Francis named the church a minor basilica on December 6, 2017 due to its important role in the growth of the Catholic Church in North America.
