March 12, 2017 – Second Sunday of Lent -The 3 Pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting, & almsgiving. Pope Francis said in his Ash Wednesday homily, ‘Lent is also a privileged time for prayer‘, He quoted St. Augustine, who described fasting and almsgiving as “the two wings of prayer,” because they are signs of humility and charity. (catholic.org)
March 5, 2017 – First Sunday of Lent – In its simplest terms, Lent is the season when we refocus ourselves on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many saints have described it as an apprenticeship to Jesus in the desert. We go with the Lord into the wilderness, and we watch him at close quarters, imitating him, seeing what he saw, and enduring what he endured. (Bishop Robert Barron)
February 26, 2017 – Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
ASH WEDNESDAY IS MARCH 1st – The name dies cinerum (day of ashes) which it bears in the Roman Missal is found in the earliest existing copies of the Gregorian Sacramentary and probably dates from at least the eighth century. On this day all the faithful according to ancient custom are exhorted to approach the altar before the beginning of Mass, and there the priest, dipping his thumb into ashes previously blessed, marks the forehead — or in case of clerics upon the place of the tonsure — of each the sign of the cross, saying the words: “Remember man that thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return.” The ashes used in this ceremony are made by burning the remains of the palms blessed on the Palm Sunday of the previous year.

January 28, 2017 – Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time – Ordinary doesn’t mean unimportant, dull, boring, or bland. Simply, ordinary time is anytime outside the liturgical seasons of Advent & Christmas, Lent and Easter. That’s why this season is called ordinary, because it has no special name like the others do. (Catholicism for Dummies by Rev. Trigilio, PhD, ThD & Rev. Brighenti, PhD)
January 22, 2017 – Third Sunday in Ordinary Time – Ordinary Time is called “ordinary” not because it is common but simply because the weeks of Ordinary Time are numbered.
