Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.

When you hear the desert and the number 40, you might think of God's People in the wilderness, wandering before they enter the Promised Land. Or you might think of our 40 days of Lent. Both good connections. But there's something else this harks back to, something much, much more ancient. Adam in the garden – being tempted by the devil. Jesus is the new Adam.

Reading Advent in Lent VOX NOVA - February 22, 2015 ... an act of will I was able to get caught up, as it were binging on the gospel. Over the past 6-8 months, however, I managed to fall disastrously far behind: about three months. Periodically I would make an attempt to get caught up, but invariably would fall even further behind. (One can almost read this as a parable about the futility of attempting to save ourselves by our own works.) So this Lent I decided to take the double track of reading the daily readings as they come, and also go back ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/02/22/reading-advent-in-lent/

Ash Wednesday: Lent Begins Καθολικός διάκονος - February 18, 2015 Since sharing my views on things these days seems to anger quite a few people, I'll go ahead and lead off my post for Ash Wednesday by simply stating that chief among the questions I truly despise is, "What are you giving up for Lent?" In the first place, it's none of your business- pray, fast, give alms in secret and all that ( Matt 6:1-8.16-18 ). I know, God knows, and my spiritual director knows. Among my reasons for disliking this question is not because what I giving up ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday-lent-begins.html

10 Ash Wednesday Quotes From Pope Benedict XVI TOM PERNA - February 18, 2015 Today, on Ash Wednesday, we enter the great penitential season of Lent, a season that draws our attention to prayer, sacrifice, and almsgiving. For many, this season is about "giving something up" (in today's social media driven world that would be Facebook). Whatever your Lenten fast is this year, I encourage to do it, and to do it well. Fasting though is only 1/3 of the Lenten motif, we must also pray and give alms. Since prayer is our encounter with ...http://tomperna.org/2015/02/18/10-ash-wednesday-quotes-from-pope-benedict-xvi/

I used the same documents I created last year , but this year I assembled it a little differently (similar to how I first assembled it back before I was blogging) so that each week could begin with Sunday.

It is the time for the priesthood (the Church – you) to call to mind things that need to be prayed for and then the celebrant collects those ...http://clevelandpriest.blogspot.com/2015/02/priday-potpourri-pray-priest.html
