March 19, 2017 - The 3rd Sunday in Lent
Of many things:
We want to welcome, at all the Masses this weekend, Paul Koleske who will be encouraging us to attend this year’s Parish Mission on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, March 20th through March 22nd at 7 o’clock p.m. I am looking forward to it; I hope you are too.
Tomorrow, Monday, is the Feast of Saint Joseph. Normally, it is on March 19th, but it was transferred to Monday since the Third Sunday of Lent takes precedence. Don’t forget to go to Joseph with a “big intention”; not a small one. Saint Theresa of Avila named all of her convents after Saint Joseph and urged all of her sisters to go to Joseph on his feast day with a special “big intention”. If anyone has Jesus’ ear up in heaven (next to Mary), it has got to be Saint Joseph. Perhaps, use this prayer as one of your prayers tomorrow, or any day.
Prayer to St. Joseph
You entrusted our Savior
to the care of St. Joseph.
By the help of his prayers
may Your Church continue
to serve its Lord, Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.
God Love & Bless you all,
P.S. Thanks to all who continue to help work and support our Lenten Fish Frys.
