A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

Fr. Jordan reflected:
What is more beautiful than to suffer for Jesus, to sacrifice, and to suffer?
For with Jesus we must also go the way of the cross.

This year Ash Wednesday falls on March 6 - the beginning of Lent. Lent has always been seen as a time of sacrifice, but it can also be a time to do good for others.  We give up something for Lent as a sacrifice - a way to remember Our Saviors' sacrifice on the Cross, but we can give back as well.  We should remember to challenge ourselves to be better Catholics.   Let's strive to make the most of the Lenten season by sacrificing, renewing our faith and helping others.

Another way to work on our path to Salvation during Lent is through daily prayer. On March 19, during Lent, 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.

Throughout Lent and as we approach Holy Week, please join us as we celebrate with a special Novena dedicated to St. Joseph.  To honor Our Savior's "Father on Earth", the Salvatorians will celebrate a Novena of Masses dedicated to St. Joseph beginning on March 19.  To be assured your intentions are included in the St. Joseph Novena please contact us on the web, by mail or call us at 1-800-254-4902 before March 19.

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