Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praised be Jesus Christ, our God and Savior!
Thank you for all you're doing to proclaim God's word
through Presentation Ministries and especially through sharing
the ONE BREAD, ONE BODY booklet. Lent begins on Feb. 2nd
with the traditional ashes to remind us of our mortality, calling us
to a repent of our sins, and to a closer relationship with Jesus! Let
us embrace the cross (Mt 10:38) that God has given us and thank
Him for allowing us to suffer for Him.
Lent is a wonderful time to introduce this book to your
friends, relatives, enemies, prayer group, pastor, or to one key
person in your diocese; please consider doing that right away.
God's word is life changing, but it takes sacrifice to share it.
Thanks for your sacrifice! Send a Sample
or Subscription to someone you know.
May each of us have the greatest Lent leading to the most
glorious Easter we have ever had. Let's pray and fast as if it were
our last Lent on earth. Pope John Paul II taught that prayer and
fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces
of evil (Gospel of Life, 100). It is time to fast as never before. Why
not eat only one full meal each day of Lent, as we were called to
do years ago in the church?
Some publications which may help you this Lent are:
The Lord may be calling you to come to our Discipleship
Retreats this spring.
Please consider donating to complete the Chapel at the Retreat
Center in Peebles.
Our nine days of prayer and fasting (novena) will conclude
on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, celebrated Feb 2nd.
Keep praying that Presentation Ministries will bear much fruit in
conversions to Jesus and growth in holiness.
Your Brothers in Jesus,
George Schmidl. Jerry Cappel, and Mark Schuermann
The Directors of Presentation Ministries
