Visit my on-line Stations of the Cross.  I wrote the text for children and
adults alike.  They're available in English and Spanish as well.  Visit the
Stations every day during Lent.  They've been newly illustrated by the 4th
Graders of Saint Pat's School. I think you'll like them a great deal. Here's

Visit all my Lenten pages.  There are many resources, including resources
for Reconciliation (Confession), a great Examination of Conscience, and even
a "printable" Credit Card to Heaven that contains all the words you'll need
for Confession except the sins.  So, even if you haven't been to Confession
for 92 years, this can be the year for your!  Just follow the banner link

Servant of God Sylvester of Assisi (d. 1240) 
Sylvester was one of the first 12 followers of St. Francis of Assisi and was
the first priest in the Franciscan Order. A descendant of a noble family,
Sylvester once sold Francis stones which were to be used to rebuild a
church. When, a short while later, he saw Francis and Bernard of Quintavalle
distributing Bernard's wealth to the poor, Sylvester complained that he had
been poorly paid for the stones and asked for more money.  For more, click

The LORD said to Moses, "I see how stiff-necked this people is. Let me
alone, then, that my wrath may blaze up against them to consume them. Then I
will make of you a great nation."  ~ Exodus 32:7-14

How can you believe, when you accept praise from one another and do not seek
the praise that comes from the only God?  ~ John 5:31-47

Scriptures: http://www.nccbuscc.org/nab/

Sometimes we are stiff-necked people.  We know what we want and we want it
right away.  We can act like children sometimes, when we think God is not
doing for us what we'd like Him to do.  But we can be much more pliable as
wee seek the praise that comes from the only God.  We can accept the things
we cannot change and know that God will give us all we need.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may not be selfish and stiff-necked.  I pray that I can seek
the praise that comes from God, trusting that God will provide all I need.
