Season of Lent reminds us of sin and our need for conversion

 

For me, Lent always starts with Mass on Ash Wednesday at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne. The church was packed. Then I was off to St. Mary's Church nearby for soup and bread with Father Tom O'Connor (a long tradition, recently restored). People gave up their lunch and came to Father Tom's for soup and bread and left what funds they would ordinarily pay for lunch, and more as well, so St. Mary's can...

I don't think I ever told anyone publicly but I love the town of Waynedale, Indiana. Of course it doesn't look anything like the small town that I came from in West Virginia 37 years ago.

They weren't too busy, just a steady stream of customers coming and going. We've been there before on different days and they were very busy then.

To the wonderful people of Waynedale,

Just recently I lost my husband of 27 years – Larry D. McGinnis. His sudden death was devastating; yet during this time of grief the love, compassion, prayers, and support the people of Waynedale and surrounding area have shown my family and me, has been overwhelming.

I never realized until now how many wonderful friends, my husband had made in the last 27 years while we've lived in the Waynedale area. I wish to thank everyone who, during the funeral...

For many people today, there is much pressure because it is the end of the month. Many struggling with financial commitments they can't meet are dealing with much stress today. Today ends another month and more obligations become due. Giving up seems like the easiest thing to do, but my friend, that is a thought straight from the pits of hell itself. Praying doesn't seem to work. It doesn't look like any miracles are on the horizon. What now? What is the next move?

First of all, praying...
