My Faith Story: Joe Mellone – “These Three Things…”

‘My day begins and ends with reading my Missal which has Bible readings in it. For me, the summer begins with my annual trip to Lourdes which is a place of pilgrimage in France. Every Sunday my day isn’t complete without going to Mass. These three things give me time to pray to Jesus, Our Lord, to thank him for my family who take care of me. When I am asked to read in church, I feel it is an honour and a joy to read out the words of Our Lord and share them with everyone. Life isn’t always easy but I am very lucky.’

Joe is reading part of the Litany of Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the Papal Vigil in Hyde Park on Saturday 18th September 2010
