A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

Fr. Jordan reflected:  Only in the shadow of the Cross do the fruits of salvation thrive.

Our period of Salvation began on Ash Wednesday. That is when we should  begin that time of prayer, sacrifice, and charity in order to prepare us to renew our personal relationship with Our Savior.  Those great sacrifices Jesus endured for us are a constant reminder, challenging us to be better Catholics.  We, as Christians, challenge ourselves to make the most of the Lenten season by renewing our faith and by helping others.  We can certainly spend time during Lent working on our path to Salvation by prayer, love, and sacrifice.  Our Savior gave us so much that I truly believe He will continue to give us the means to achieve eternal salvation, if only we will ask.

We are blessed to have Lent to encourage us to do good every day and to remember the courageous sacrifice of our Savior on earth. Can we really be as loving, giving, and courageous as was Jesus?  We can only try.  Make prayer a daily priority during Lent.  Give more time and treasure to others.  We generally give up some thing during Lent. Take a minute to reflect on the motive behind this small sacrifice.

During Lent, and as we approach Holy Week, I invite you to send me your intentions for a remembrance in our Salvatorian Easter Novena which begins Easter Sunday, April 20th.

Please send me your intentions either online, by mail, or call 1-800-254-4902 toll free. I'll see to it that they are placed near the altar of St. Gregory's Church in St. Nazianz, Wisconsin, where they will be remembered on Easter Sunday, as well as throughout our Easter Novena.

I encourage you to take a look at the Lenten Meditation, our Guide to Praying the Stations of the Cross, Lenten Prayer and our Prayer for Holy Week. May you, and all those you love, be blessed throughout the weeks of Lent and as we prepare to celebrate our Savior's triumph on Easter morning.

As a Reminder:

Mother's Day will be here before you know it, and Salvatorians will celebrate with a special Novena of Masses and prayers, beginning on Mother's Day, May 11th. To your right you will see our Mother's Day Novena card that you may want to send as a greeting to your beloved mother or to another woman who is dear to you. To be assured your intentions are included in our Mother's Day Novena please contact us online or by mail before May 11th. You may also contact us using our toll-free number 1-800-254-4902.
