Lent, a time for coming closer to God February 17th, 2010 Listen Now
Ash Wednesday When any one of us realizes he is sad, or is ill-humored, bad tempered, blames others or things around him, spiritually lazy, not able to finish things, we need to say to ourselves, I am not close enough to Christ. Jesus says to us in those times, Come on! Turn around! Return to me with all your heart. Posted in Lent | Tags: Ash Wednesday | No Comments St. Michael Time
