A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

The Forty days of Lent begin on Ash Wednesday, February 26th. Traditionally Lent is a time of prayer, sacrifice and charity, a time to renew our personal relationship with Our Savior.  We as Christians try to make the most of the Lenten season by really living our faith and helping others.   As we remember the great struggles Jesus endured for us let us challenge ourselves to be like Our Savior through prayer, love and sacrifice.

Fr. Jordan wrote these words: If we want to accomplish great things, if we want to do much for God's honor, we must go the way of the Savior: per crucem, through the cross.

Can we really be as loving, giving and courageous as was Jesus?  We surely can try! We can make prayer a daily priority for the remainder of Lent.  Maybe we can give a little more time and treasure to others.  We generally "give up" some little pleasure during Lent, a small sacrifice that allows us to reflect on Christ's enormous suffering.  We are blessed to have the period of Lent to remind us that we can do much good and to remember the courageous sacrifice of our Savior on earth.

One way to use the power of prayer is to participate in the Novena of Masses dedicated to St Joseph during Lent. St. Joseph 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. The Salvatorians will celebrate Masses dedicated to St. Joseph beginning on March 19.  We would like to include your intentions in the St. Joseph Novena so please contact us online, my mail or by calling us at 1-800-254-4902. Our St. Joseph prayer.

Also, 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 12 at our Motherhouse in Rome. Please send me your intentions either online, by mail or by calling us at 1-800-254-4902. Take a look at our Easter Mass cards.

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.

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