Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise Jesus, our crucified and risen Lord! As the season of Lent approaches, let us pray that this Lent will be the most fruitful of our lives. Let us pray we bear a hundred-fold harvest (see Mt 13:23) through our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Let us pray to be holy as He is holy (1 Pt 1:16), that we can radically live our baptism, and that we can grow to full maturity in Christ (Eph 4:13).
Thank you for your prayers and sacrifices for Presentation Ministries (PM) - they are precious to us. Thank you for sharing what you have received through One Bread, One Body with your family, co-workers, parishioners and friends. Thank you for your financial support for PM. This book is not free, but all can afford it. We ask you to listen to the Holy Spirit about
what donation to make.
During Lent, we often hear God's callings for our lives. Is the Lord calling you to join PM as a "co-worker"? Is He calling you to bring our radio program, Daily Bread, to your local radio station? Perhaps He is asking you to start a PM Bible Telephone line in your city. Or maybe He is asking you to systematically study the Catholic faith through Guadalupe Bible College. Contact us at (513) 662-JESU for more information about any of the items above. Let's pray with Mary that we will "do whatever [Jesus] tells" us (Jn 2:5).
We hope to see you at the 25th annual Bible Institute beginning July 24. Put the dates on your calendar and see the middle insert for more information.
May God bless you abundantly!
Your brothers in Jesus,
Deacon George Schmidl, Mark Schuermann, and Chris Jasek
