If you would like to witness to Christ by sharing your story, please email us at info@passionofchrist.ca.

Jesus said, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23 Following are some real-life testimonies from people all over the world carrying their cross with the help of Jesus. Some of these stories may make you cry. Life can be so difficult, but Our Lord Jesus is never far away. Remember Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 It is my hope that these witnesses will help you to grow in compassion and understanding. It is my hope that you will want to pray for them and for people coping with similar problems.

When Mental Illness takes your Mother

In the front hall of my tar-paper house where I lived when I was five years old we made a small altar and placed a picture of St. Theresa the Little Flower with a small vase of fresh-cut flowers.  It was such a joy to kneel on the floor in front of the little altar and pray…....
