Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise Jesus, our Lord and Savior! Thanks for all you are doing to proclaim God's Word through Presentation Ministries (PM) and especially through One Bread, One Body (OBOB). As winter presses on and Lent approaches, beginning Feb. 18, we are trying to reach 10,000 new subscribers to OBOB by the end of Lent. Many of you have already done a great job in sharing this book. Thanks for what you have done. Keep it up! If you haven't introduced a friend, relative, enemy, prayer group, pastor, or that one key person in your diocese to OBOB, please do it right away. God bless you! Please pray to the Holy Spirit about what to contribute for this publication.
May each of you have the greatest Lent leading to a most glorious Easter. Lent is the time to imitate Jesus in His forty-day fast. Pope Saint 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's time to fast as never before. Why not eat only one full meal each day of Lent, as we did years ago? You may wish to order some of our publications to help you this Lent. To order, call our Ministry Center (513) 662-5378 or visit our Publications Page.
