Wednesday, February 26, 2020: (Ash Wednesday, start of Lent)
Jesus said: “My people, you are starting a new Lenten Season with your ashes on the forehead, and your fasting between meals with no meat. This is a time to focus on how you can improve your spiritual life, and how you can work on curbing any of your bad habits. It is also a time for extra prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. When you think about fasting, it is an extra step in your day to remember the whole purpose of doing better in life to please Me. Think more of loving Me by praying slowly and also think of loving your neighbor and helping them in your good works. You may give up some pleasures as you offer your little suffering up to Me. Remember the reading about praying in secret so My Father can store up blessings for you in heaven. Your life on earth is a struggle, but you can accomplish great things when you call on Me in faith. By working hard on your Lenten devotions, this Lent can help move you closer to Me, and away from the distractions of the world.”

(Kathy Gibbs Mass intention) Kathy said: “My dear Carol and John, I am sorry you could not attend my funeral, but I will miss all of our annual get-togethers. I enjoyed shopping for you in the stores, as I remember how much you liked eating the Magnum ice cream bars, and shopping for flowers. I also brought you some refuge foods and extras from Lehman’s catalog store. We had so many good times together, and I enjoyed your talks. I am not sure that my refuge will be carried on by my family. I am in the upper part of purgatory, and I appreciate your Mass and prayers for my intention. I always looked forward to our meetings, and we had many laughs together. Now, we may have to meet again some day in heaven.”
