Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON

The healing power of God is made clear in our readings this Sunday.  Sometimes I have seen transforming changes take place in people who have endured sickness or other suffering in their life with the help of their faith, and the confidence and consolation that it brings them.  Sometimes, I have seen actual healing take place that otherwise was not expected by the doctors.  The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is a powerful way to open up to the desire of God to be with someone who is suffering physically and to bring them His comfort in the way He knows they will most benefit from, for their salvation.  Donít be afraid to call a priest to receive this beautiful sacrament of the God through His Church.

With Lent drawing near, this is a good time to be thinking and prayerfully considering what would make a good Lenten program for this year.  Attending daily mass more often, Bible reading, a daily rosary, or an additional rosary for others needs, volunteering around the parish or in the community, would all be good things to consider adding for Lent.  Fasting from certain things helps to strengthen the will if we combine it with prayer to link it in our minds and hearts with spiritual growth, as well as showing sorrow for sin, our own of the past, and that of the whole world. Lent is spring training for Christians. Letís get ready for a great season!

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
