I thirst for you” is the theme of our Lady of Good Counsel Parish. This message reflects the convergence of two thirsts - our thirst for Jesus that can only be quenched by knowing Him, and His thirst for each and every one of us at every single moment. The beautiful “I thirst for you” prayer written by Blessed Mother Teresa best describes this undying love, always there standing at the door of our hearts. Fr. Riccardo leads a Good Friday meditation with this prayer before the service at Our Lady of Good Counsel.
