Daily Reflections .......For the Greater Glory of God

A Mardi Gras Prayer | Schedule of the Holy Father's Visit to Mexico - Feb 12-16

Praying LentThis is the time to begin to get ourselves prepared for our Lenten Journey. Lent is not something we do for God.

It is a way of opening our hearts to receive what God whats to give us. What might God be offering me this year?

How to get started. What will I do? How can I do this as a family, with children? How does how I cook and eat make a difference? What needs reconciling? With whom? See resources for parishes. Make a parish mission. Do a retreat. Enjoy a weekly conversation about each week of Lent. Take advantage of a daily prayer, each day of Lent.

See how this Lent can be the best Lent ever.

Lenten Audio Conversations:
Sharing about what's happening each week.

Now with text transcripts of the Conversations which can be shared with others. Here's the first one.
