A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

On Ash Wednesday, February 18th, we entered the season of Lent. It is a time of penance and fasting but moreover it is a time for reflection and prayer.  We can look at our own transgressions 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-we selfishly help ourselves when we 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 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. We should take some time to contemplate how our prayers and actions will help others.  We generally "give up" some little pleasure during Lent so maybe we can "give back" some little offering to someone else.  We are blessed to have the Lenten period to pray and to ultimately win our own fight to be better Catholics.

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 5. Please send me your intentions either online, by mail or call toll free 1-800-254-4902. 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 and our Guide to Praying the Stations of the Cross. We also have a Lenten Prayer and Holy Week Prayer that you may wish to pray. 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.

Just a Reminder:

The Salvatorians will be celebrating a special Novena to honor St. Joseph, "Patron of the Church", beginning on March 19. Together we will pray to St. Joseph to help us guard and protect our love of Family, Church and Savior - to make his faith our faith! Let me know your personal intentions so they can be included in our prayers during the St. Joseph Novena.  Please contact us online or by mail before March 19.  You can also contact us using our toll-free number 1-800-254-4902. May you and those dear to you know our Savior's every blessing as we celebrate St. Joseph's Novena of Masses.
