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 begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10. It is when we begin that time of prayer, sacrifice and charity that will prepare us to renew our personal relationship with Our Savior.  We can challenge ourselves to make the most of the Lenten season by renewing our faith and helping others.  Those great sacrifices Jesus endured for us are a constant reminder to test ourselves and to be better Catholics.  We can certainly spend some time during Lent working on our path to Salvation, through prayer, love and sacrifice.  Our Savior gave us so much - and I truly believe that He will continue to give us the means to achieve eternal salvation - we only have to ask!

Can we really be as loving, giving and courageous as was Jesus?  Let's try!  Let's make prayer a daily priority during Lent.  Let's give a little more time and treasure to others.  We generally "give up" some little pleasure during Lent so let's 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 March 27.

Please send me your intentions either online, by mail or call 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 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.

As a Reminder -

The Salvatorian's are celebrating a Novena of Masses beginning February 14 through February 22 in honor of St Valentine. We would be honored  to pray for you and your loved ones intentions.  Please send us your intentions for the St. Valentine Novena before February 13th.   Also, the Salvatorians have beautiful St. Valentine cards available that you can send to your loved ones.  When you send this card to someone we will include them in our Novena prayers as well.  Consider that you are not only sending a Valentine greeting, but also sending the gift of prayer - something that helps us all! You may send us your intentions by mail, on-line, or you may call us at 1-800-254-4902.

You may want to order the "Prayer for a Friend" prayer card to send along with your St. Valentine Mass card. We also have a St. Valentine Rosary bracelet or a red heart beaded Rosary which would make a nice gift.

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