"It is not the actual physical exertion that counts towards a man's progress, nor the nature of the task, but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken."
— St. Francis Xavier
may the contemplation of your
Transfiguration to the Apostles
transform my faith.
Seeing you in your glory,
may I be infused
with the grace necessary
to share it with others.
We hope everyone had a blessed weekend and has a great day! God Bless!

Week 1 of Lent
Reflection on Care for Creation
As we enter into Lent we are called to journey inward, to look into our own hearts, and change what needs to be changed in order to draw closer to God.
Laudato Si' Actions
Water is scarce in many parts of the world and millions of people do not have access to clean drinking water. Here are a few suggestions that will help us be mindful of the use of water:
Don’t let the water run while brushing your teeth or shaving.
Turn off the water while soaping or shampooing.
Keep drinking water in the fridge instead of letting the faucet run until the water is cool.
Only use the dishwasher and washing machine when they are full.
Add plastic/glass jars filled with sand to the tank to conserve water
VERSE OF THE DAY
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love."
Enshrined in the beautiful Bernini reliquary in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome is the relic of the actual Chair of St. Peter the Apostle, venerated because it was from that very chair that the first Pope, the Vicar of Christ, imparted the Christian faith which was entrusted to him by Jesus Christ, and which has been passed on for 2,000 years through the Catholic bishops, and will continue until Christ returns. The Chair of St. Peter is a symbol of the authority and primacy of the first Bishop of Rome, and, through communion with the Roman Pontiff and his successors, the unity of the Universal Church.
The feast day of the Chair of St. Peter is celebrated on February 22nd.
"Relying on God has to start all over everyday, as if nothing has yet been done." –
