A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

On Ash Wednesday, February 14th we enter the season of Lent. Although we think of Lent as a time of penance and fasting, it is also a time for reflection and prayer.  We can surely consider our personal lapses of the past year and then plan to be better and to renew our personal relationship with Our Savior.  As we pray let's also try to keep other peoples' difficulties in mind - and maybe find a way to enrich someone else's life. We can certainly spend some time during Lent working on our path to Salvation, through prayer, love, service and sacrifice.

Fr. Jordan told us - Pray. The Lord will not abandon you. He will support you to fight the good fight to the end. Prayer, I say assures us victory.

Let's make prayer a daily priority during Lent. With our prayers and actions we may just help others as well as ourselves.  We generally "give up" some little pleasure during Lent so maybe we can "give back" something to help someone else.  So let's pledge to improve our spiritual health and help others also. We are blessed to have the Lenten period to pray and to help turn us into better Catholics.

I encourage you to take a look at the Lenten Meditation and our Guide to Praying the Stations of the Cross. We also have a Lenten Prayer and a Prayer for Holy Week that you may wish to pray.

During Lent and as we approach Holy Week, I invite you to send me your intentions for a remembrance in our Salvatorian Easter Novena starting Easter Sunday, April 1st. Your intentions will be placed near the altar at St. Gregory's Church in St. Nazianz, Wisconsin. We will offer prayers to honor your intentions during the Easter Mass and throughout the remaining days of our Easter Novena, April 1 to 9. We will also pray for you and your intentions at our Easter Novena of Masses celebrated at our Salvatorian Motherhouse in Rome.

Please send me your intentions either online, by mail or call 1-800-254-4902. You might also consider giving a gift of a Salvatorian Easter Mass card to a loved one or friend. I know that your nearest and dearest will love receiving a card that speaks of the hope and the love that is the message of Easter.

May you and those dear to you know our Savior's every blessing and may God continue to fill you with grace.

P.S.  Also during Lent, on March 19, we will be celebrating the Feast of St. Joseph who is known as the patron and protector of the Church. St. Joseph is the Patron Saint of workers and of the sick and dying and is the model for ideal fathers. He was a man who certainly sacrificed and prayed every day. How fitting that we celebrate St. Joseph during Lent - reflecting on his life gives us a great example of how we can enrich our own lives both corporal and spiritual. To be assured your intentions are included in the St. Joseph Novena, please contact us online, by mail or call 1-800-254-4902 before March 19th.
