Do you ever drive by a
cemetery and want to pray for the deceased and especially for those close to
you? And are there so many that you can't remember them all or just don't have
time to pray for them all? Well, what I and all of my Catechism
Students have done since 1989, is to write all the names of our deceased loved ones in
a book I keep, and we call this book "The Book of Hope". Then
whenever we want to pray for our loved ones, we simply pray for all those in the Book of
Hope. The added benefit is that we are also praying for everyone else's loved ones
at the same time. So my loved ones and their loved ones can get many times the
prayers they would normally get.

We find beauty in old things; buildings, furniture, jewelry -but we do not see beauty in old countenance.
Human beings seem to be one of the few commodities that lose value with age.
In fact, if church groups were asked to organize a team of 12 to help Jesus, assessments of candidates would be based on factors like race, skill, knowledge and wealth.
Just as well God chose to work through a ragged band of Galilean peasants, called from their fishing nets, small plots of land and humble trades.
Even their probable poor literacy was no stumbling block for God.
God puts a measuring tape around the heart, not the head. We need willing learners with big hearts, people who will risk everything at Jesus' word.
God isn't choosy, we are!
Reminder About Friday
Each year as we leave Lent behind us, we also leave the explicit
call to abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent.
All are reminded, however, that EVERY Friday of the year is a day of PENANCE
for ALL Catholics, recalling the day of Christ's death.
You are free to choose to abstain from meat or select some other
penitential practice for that day.
God Bless and
Jesus is the "Master" of this Site!
