Our Lenten Journey, March 1, 2018



Today’s Readings from the USCCB:

“Whenever material things, money, worldliness, become the center of our lives, they take hold of us, they possess us; we lose our very identity as human beings,”
—Pope Francis
“They have succeeded in accumulating a greater mass of objects, but the joy in the world has grown less.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
“Modern life is too often built on the marketing of half-truths and lies about who we are and what we deserve.  Many of the lies are well-intentioned and not even very harmful — but they’re still lies.”
— Archbishop Charles Chaput
