The Fifteen Secret Tortures of Christ

The Fifteen Secret Tortures and Suffering of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Chaplet Prayer
This devotion is approved and recommended by His Holiness Clement II, (1730-1740)

This chaplet consists of 15 beads + 3 beads at the beginning.
Revealed to the pious, God-loving Sister Mary Magdalen of Sancta Clara Order, Franciscan, who lived, died and was beatified in Rome. Jesus fulfilled the wish of this Sister, who desired to ardently know something about the secret sufferings which He endured the night before His death.

Lent is Coming in CGS

During Lent there is more quiet prayer time and special presentations such as Jesus’ parables and the City of Jerusalem, culminating with the Cenacle (The Lords Supper) for Level 1 and The Origin of Eucharist for Level 2.

In the atrium we mark the beginning of Lent with a celebration of burying our Alleluias.  Alleluia means Praise the Lord.  We set aside this beautiful praise word in preparation for the Great Celebration of Easter.  Have your children make Alleluia banners and “bury” them in your home.
