A Few Words from Brother Silas

Fr Jordan reflected: What is more beautiful than to suffer for Jesus, to sacrifice, and to suffer?  For with Jesus we must also go the way of the cross.

This year Ash Wednesday falls on February 17 - the beginning of Lent. It seems that we have all spent the last year sacrificing and suffering during a particularly bad time of separation and loss. But with this Lenten season we are feeling a bit more hopeful and this time of sacrifice will probably be more reflective.  Usually we give up something for Lent as a sacrifice - a way to remember Our Saviors' sacrifice on the Cross. The forty days of Lent this year will be a time for sacrificing, but it will also be a time to have hope in the future.  We can always challenge ourselves to be better Catholics and strive to make the most of the Lenten season by sacrificing and renewing our faith, but we can also possess a belief in a better future.

I encourage you to take a look at our Lenten Meditation and our Guide to Praying the Stations of the Cross. We also have a Lenten Prayer and a Prayer for Holy Week as well.

Another way to work on our path to Salvation during Lent is through daily prayer.  On March 19, during Lent, we will be celebrating the Feast of St Joseph who is known as the patron and protector of the Church. St Joseph is the Patron Saint of workers and of the sick and dying and is the model for ideal fathers.   He was a man who certainly sacrificed and prayed every day. How fitting that we celebrate St Joseph during Lent, reflecting on his life gives us a great example of how we can enrich our own lives both corporal and spiritual.

Throughout Lent and as we approach Holy Week, please join us as we celebrate with a special Novena dedicated to St Joseph.  To honor Our Savior's "Father on Earth", the Salvatorians will celebrate a Novena of Masses dedicated to St. Joseph beginning on March 19.  To be assured your intentions are included in the St. Joseph Novena, please contact us online, by mail or give us a call at 1-800-254-4902 before March 19.

May you and those dear to you know our Savior's every blessing and may God continue to fill you with grace.
