The Surrender Initiative calls us to prayer
Many of us have experienced the heartache of watching someone we deeply care about drift away from the Church. This separation often evokes feelings of sorrow and leaves us questioning, “Could I have intervened more effectively?” Some distance themselves because of misunderstandings or painful experiences within the Church. It's natural to feel unequipped to address these situations, especially as the wider culture leans more towards secularization, diminishing the allure of faith for many. The Surrender Initiative presents an opportunity to come together as the Body of Christ--to gather in the sacredness of the Holy Mass, praying intentionally and dedicating our Mass prayers and sacrifices for those we love who are no longer practicing their faith.
