My Lent page is up and running, a few days early.  The can give those of you
with Web Sites who'd like to link to my resources some time to get ready.
You'll find materials on Reconciliation, an Examination of Conscience and
even a Credit Card to Heaven.  Lenten regulations are there too, along with
a complete schedule of Services and Activities.  Be sure to visit our
ON-LINE STATIONS OF THE CROSS.  I've written them for children and adults
alike.  They've been newly illustrated this year by the 4th Graders at our
own Saint Patrick's School and are available in English and Spanish as well.
Just follow the link from:

"The one who endures to the end will be saved."  ~Matthew 10:22

How many of the world's prayers have gone unanswered because those who
prayed did not endure to the end?  Sometimes we feel like it's too late,
that we need to act for ourselves, that God is not going to guide us. "The
one who endures to the end will be saved."  Can I endure to the very end?  I
can try to endure with courage.  If I endure, God can unlock those secret
spiritual treasures that are missed by those who give up too soon.

I pray that I may follow God's guidance so that spiritual success shall be
mine.  I pray that I may never doubt the power of God and take things into
my own hands.
