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
the link: www.frpat.com/stations.htm

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

St. John Joseph of the Cross (1654-1734) 
Self-denial is never an end in itself but is only a help toward greater
charity-as the life of Saint John Joseph shows. John Joseph was very ascetic
even as a young man. At 16 he joined the Franciscans in Naples; he was the
first Italian to follow the reform movement of Saint Peter Alcantara. John's
reputation for holiness prompted his superiors to put him in charge of
establishing a new friary even before he was ordained.

Can a mother forget her infant, be without tenderness for the child of her
womb? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.  ~ Isaiah 49:8-15

Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Amen,
amen, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent
me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from
death to life.  ~ John 5:17-3-

God is always with us.  He will never forget us.  When we honor the Son we
honor the Father who sent him.  WE can be grateful that when we hear Jesus'
words and believe in the one who sent Him we can pass from death to life.

I pray that I may trust that God will be with me always.  I pray that I may
honor the Father by honoring the Son.  I pray that I may be grateful for all
God has given me, hear Jesus' words, believe in the one who sent Him and
pass from death to life.

Sharon asks prayers for her sister-in-law who is dying of lung cancer. Nancy
from PA who is a four-year cancer survivor offers prayers of thanksgiving
for another good mammogram report that God will continue to keep her cancer
free. Paulinemary asks prayers of thanksgiving for all her family has
received in the last month.

Jeanne asks for prayers that things go well at her Doctor appointment in
Iowa City on March 5th, and that the VA does not take away any of her
pension. A member asks for prayers for physical and moral protection for her
daughter and granddaughter.

Dora needs lots of prayers for someone, for her knee recovery and being able
to go back to work. A member asks prayers for her son as he seeks a new
position, so that God's will be done. A member asks prayers for two very
special intentions. Lucille asks prayer for her husband whose blood count
has been going down and is about to undergo tests. Cindy asks prayers for a
special intention.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
