Thoughts for the Journey

"Repent and believe in the Gospel"
Sisters and brothers,
Once again, the Lord invites us to go into the desert with Him to pray, fast and turn our lives from sin to holiness. Will we accept the invitation? Each one of us must respond on our own. Failing to respond is a resounding NO. There is not a neutral response; only a yes or no. A yes requires much, but more will be received. A no requires nothing and little will be given.
Father Mike has made it easy for us.

In addition, sacrifice and almsgiving are important. Continue to "give up" those things in our daily lives that keep us from drawing ever so nearer to Jesus. Give up to the lord anxiety, worrying, uneasiness. Pray for His peace. Give up anger, hatred, discrimination. Pray for unity of all people. Contribute to Operation Rice Bowl. Contribute to the poor by placing money in the poor boxes at each entrance to the church.
