Pray, Fast, Almsgiving

A new season is about to begin in the Church calendar. It is called Lent.

Lent is a season for conversion. It is the season in which we acknowledge how great the love of God is for us that he sent his only begotten Son to suffer grievously, to die and rise again to free us from the bondage of sin and death. It is the season in which we join Jesus in prayer, fasting and reaching out to help those who are in need around us.

It has been a custom among Christians to fast or to give up certain things in their lives during Lent. It is a wonderful custom. To spice things up a little bit more, one might need to add doing something positive to their abstinence or fasting. Maybe identifying somebody who needs help coming to church and help get them to church. That way it is not just about us giving up something but we are doing something for others as well.

The best fast we can do for Lent is that from sin. We can seek to identify the weakest area in our life that cause us to sin the most and focus on that area throughout Lent.  Who knows that when Lent is over we will find ourselves better in that area for the rest of our lives.

Let me remind us that Wednesday, February 26, is Ash Wednesday. Our Mass schedule is listed in the bulletin and on the website. It is a day of fasting and abstinence. This means we are supposed to abstain from eating meat and that we are to limit ourselves to having one main meal for the day. This will be repeated on Good Friday. For the rest of Lent every Catholic is required to abstain from eating meat every Friday during Lent. Those who have serious health issues and the elderly are exempted from this practice.

Let us remain prayerful during this season of Lent reflecting on all that our Savior suffered and endured for our sake and the sake of the world.

Father Michael Schmitz: How do I get better at being generous

I find myself being less-than-generous quite often. I want to have a better attitude, but people keep wanting things from me: they want my time, my help, and my financial support. How do I get better at being generous?

Father Richard Kunst: When the church seems to be 'always' talking about money

In the years that I have been a priest, the vast majority of my parishioners have known that my least favorite subject to talk about is money. But I have had some of the parishes that actually think it is my very favorite subject to preach about! This is because some parishes as a whole do better than others in their charity and support of the church.

Father Nick Nelson: Where's that in the Bible?

Very often people will chide Catholics about a particular belief, saying, “Where is that in the Bible?” Or even well-intentioned Catholics sometimes will ask me to show them where this or that teaching is in the Bible.
