Readings for the Week

Due to public health concerns, the Diocese has decided to suspend all public Masses. Baptisms will continue but with only the parents and godparents present. Outside committal services will continue. Using great prudence and where possible, The Sacrament of the Sick and Holy Viaticum may also be administered.

Pray is for the LOVE for GOD

Fast is LOVE for yourself

Give is LOVE for others

Prayer, fasting, and works of love.  

Why we fast:

First of all, Jesus fasted.  By abstaining from meat, eating smaller meals, or not snacking, we are imitating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  James 4:6 reminds us that God gives grace to the humble, and fasting is a way to humble ourselves and release God's grace in our lives in a very powerful way.

Fasting in the words of Pope Francis:

- Fast from hurting words and say kind words.

- Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.

-Fast from anger and be filled with patience.

- Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope.

-Fast from worries and trust in God.

-Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.

-Fast from pressures and be prayerful

-Fast from bitterness and fill your heart with joy.

-Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others.

-Fast from grudges and be reconciled.

-Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.
