    What an enlightenment this article was for the beginning of Lent! As I go on my journey to be able to "hear" from God, this season helps to clear the way. Good luck to everyone out there during your journeys with God!!!

    Great article. Someone should send it to Vice President Joe Biden who gave a Speech Wednesday morning with ashes still on his forehead. With the prayers of the faithful perhaps he will become pro-life and help defend God's gift of Life on Easter Sunday.

    Thank you for this wonderful message, and may we carry our crosses and be on the journey with our Saviour. May we be reminded that Christ suffered immensely and we his followers ought to be prepared for the temptations, obstacles and threats that may discourage us from sharing in this unique and powerful journey.

    May our Omnipotent God bless us and give us strength now and forever. AMEN

    What a beautiful opening note for lent. It was so moving, I cried. The tears got me straight to the pain, suffering of Christ in Calvary for my sins and its piercing my heart as we begin this journey to the desert on ash Wednesday. No resurrection without good Friday as no passion without a beginning point.

    Dear Lord,
    During this Lenten season please help Michelle to heal, and find the path that you have chosen for her. Help me to understand your path for me, and prepare for your ressurection on Easter Sunday.
    Amen.
