The most wonderful time of the year!

You know the tune... It's the most wonderful time of the year With fish fries a smelling and everyone telling you "try giving up beer" It's the most wonderful time of the year. It's the pray-prayingest season of all with weekly prayer meetings and mission priest greetings out in the church hall It's the pray-prayingest season of all There'll be stations for praying and rosaries saying And lovely desserts to forgo There'll be sacrifice stories and tales of the glories of Lenten times long, long ago It's the most wonderful time of the year There'll be much ashes showing on...

Lenten Reading Suggestions for 2017

Every Lent I like to find a spiritually challenging or enlightening book to read and meditate upon. Seeing the Lent begins March 1st I thought I would share with you some of my favorite titles for Lent.  Feel free to share yours as well.

Be a Fool for Christ's sake!

Mark 3:20-21 I often wonder what life would be like for St. Francis if he were to live in our day. What would it be like if a friend of ours renounced the successful family business his father owned and chose a life of poverty? What would our reaction be if a friend we went to high school with showed up at our door dressed in burlap asking for the scraps from our dinner or extra building materials we may have in the basement? Most likely you and I would smile, offer them a cup of coffee, and then call...
