LENTEN WEEKDAY; DAY OF ABSTINENCE
Pray for besieged people everywhere
Prayer is our life with God. Sometimes we carve out a particular time during the day, and sometimes there are specific words, images, or experiences that help us be more aware of or express our relationship with God. And so of course during Lent prayer is one of the pillars, along with fasting and almsgiving, that help us turn to God. On today’s 2021 World Day of Prayer, an ecumenical observance, we are invited to “Build on a strong foundation.” This theme comes from the women of Vanuatu, an island hit by Cyclone Harold in 2020. Despite the perils they faced—and we've all faced in a year of pandemic—the message of today's prayer is one of confidence in God's steadfastness and the rock of faith. Unite in prayer for healing and recovery.
Today's readings: Genesis 37:3-4, 12-13a, 17b-28a; Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46. “The kingdom of God will be . . . given to a people that will produce its fruit.” #takefiveforfaith ... See MoreSee Less

TO KEEP A TRUE LENT
Richard Herrick, 17 century, in 17th century English -
but you'll understand his message.
To Keep A True Lent
Is this a fast, to keep
The larder leane?
From fat of veales and sheep?
Is it to quit the dish
Of flesh, yet still
The platter high with fish?
Is it to faste an houre,
Or ragg'd to go,
A downcast look, and sowre?
No: 'tis a fast, to dole
Thy sheaf of wheat
Unto the hungry soule.
It is to fast from strife,
From old debate,
To circumcise thy life.
To shew a heart grief-rent;
To starve thy sin,
And that's to keep thy Lent.
via Fr. Austin Fleming

MEMORIAL OF CASIMIR
Grace under pressure
Saint Casimir seemed destined for riches and power, but this patron saint of Poland, called the Peacemaker, took a different path. Born in 1458 to the king and queen of Poland, he was a devout, ascetic child. At age 14 his father had him lead an army to install himself as king of Hungary, but with an overpowering enemy and troops beginning to desert, Casimir instead returned home. His furious father exiled him, but Casimir would never again take up arms. Rejecting violence when those around you embrace it can take great inner strength. Cultivate an inner compass that can pursue peace despite pressure.
TODAY'S READINGS: Jeremiah 17:5-10 Luke 16:19-31. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD.”

“Free us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope...”
There is little doubt in my mind that the experience of being filled yet unfulfilled touches most of us to some degree at some time. It is hard to avoid completely the forces that fill up our inner and outer space and disconnect us from our innermost selves, our fellow human beings, and our God.
One of the most notable characteristics of worrying is that it fragments our lives. The many things to do, to think about, to plan for, the many people to remember to visit, or to talk with, the many causes to attack or defend, all these pull us apart and make us lose our center. Worrying causes us to be “all over the place,” but seldom at home.
