Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Jesus Is Lord! Once again, Jesus Is Lord! Let all our hearts cry out that Jesus is Lord of All!
Lent is coming upon us. Let us make this Lenten season great by reinforcing daily scriptures, participating in frequent Mass and Communion and calling to mind the words that St. Paul said to the Ephesians, "Do not continue in ignorance, but try to discern the will of the Lord" for you (Eph 5:17). Make this a time to stop digging a ditch an inch deep and a mile long but to dig a ditch an inch wide but a mile deep into our hearts. Lent is a time for us to look inward and surrender our sinfulness to Jesus, for He did not die on the cross to condemn us but to save us through His mercy. He is the God of Mercy, and His mercy overcomes our sinfulness which deserves condemnation.
It is our mission at Presentation Ministries to help you, our brothers and sisters in Jesus, to obtain a closer relationship with Jesus through the Word and through frequent use of the sacraments. Visit the other parts of our website for the daily Mass Reading, listen to our Daily Bread broadcast, register for a retreat, read a booklet by Fr. Al, listen to an audio by Fr. Al or watch a video. Remember Paul tells us "..not to continue in ignorance." Make Jesus alive in your life this season.
COME LORD JESUS, BE THE LORD OF MY LIFE!
