March 24, 2018 shows French Lieutenant Colonel Arnaud Beltrame who was killed after swapping himself for a hostage in a rampage and siege in the town of Trebes, southwestern France, on March 23. Beltrame, 45, was among a group of officers who rushed to the scene in Trebes, near Carcassone, on March 23 after a gunman who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State group, stormed a supermarket and fired at shoppers. Beltrame offered to take the place of a woman the gunman had taken hostage and was shot. He died on March 24 of his wounds, becoming the gunman’s fourth victim. / AFP PHOTO / LA GAZETTE DE LA MANCHE / –/AFP/Getty Images

Part 4- Lent continues by getting into the groove of going without as I reflect on the Virgin Mary and her example of selfless giving, when during the Annunciation, she gave her life over to God’s will. And also, what about the selfless gifts given by people in today’s world?

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.

The origin of these podcasts began with my book Constant Procession.

(An e-book copy of the book can be found here on the website.)

Constant Procession; the podcast; is published here every Tuesday morning.
