FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
It is my wish to see us all become sanctified this Lent to a greater degree. This comes through a program geared at becoming more converted to our Lord. He will give us the grace necessary, and even to be generous. We have to be confident in him. We must act in such a way as to please him and conquer human respect. Stand your ground in your practices and do not move. Let no siren whisper you away from your course and you will find a safe harbor where Christ embraces and shows you how much he loves you. Let us not only focus on ourselves, but to look to visiting the sick if we are able. Let us also make generous invitations:
1. Invite someone to Stations with you on Fridays at 6 PM either in Crosby or Garrison.
2. Invite someone to Confession with you on Saturday morning or before one of the Masses, and go out for coffee and a roll afterwards. It is a great way to foster friendship with God and each other.
3. Invite someone to Mass with you. There is plenty of room at daily Mass as well as the Saturday Vigil Mass at Our Lady of Fatima.
If you have room in your reserved pew, the more the merrier! God bless you this Lent with his grace and mercy.
Fr. Anthony recently blessed the Shrine to the Relic of the True Cross of Jesus at St. Joseph in Chisholm. See the photo gallery.

Father Mike Schmitz says that if you had asked him to come up with an idea for a podcast that rise to the top of Apple’s Podcast charts, “The Bible in a Year” wouldn’t have been it.
After all, he says, the podcast, put out by the Catholic publisher Ascension Press, is pretty simple: a few words of introduction, three readings from the Bible, and a few words of explanation, around 20 minutes all told.Read More

The results of the election verified something that has been increasingly clear over a number of recent election cycles: politically, anyway, we’re divided just about in half.
Nationally, in terms of popular vote, out of all those tens of millions of votes cast, the margin was less than 5%, just like it’s been the last three presidential elections. In fact, in the 21st century, five of the six presidential elections have ended up that way.Read More

It’s always interesting when very great and holy saints and even doctors of the church seem to give conflicting advice — like St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis de Sales do on the timely and important topic of anger.
