A Message from Father Bernie

Dear Friends,

Still searching for some Fasting Practices for Lent?  Here are some suggestions attributed to Pope Francis:

Fast from hurting words and say kind words.

Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.

Fast from anger and be filled with patience.

Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope

Fast from worries and have trust in God.

Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.

Fast from pressures and be prayerful.

Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy.

Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others.

Fast from grudges and be reconciled.

Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.

Please note, a great opportunity to enrich your Lenten Season is just around the corner.  In the bulletin this week, you will find registration information for the February 24th Faith Day event to be hosted again this year at Holy Rosary Parish.  Sign up and bring a friend!

Christ’s peace,

Fr. Bernie
