Theme: Keep moving

It is a common belief that a person consists of his faith, although religion which is cause of faith is so common the fact remains that faith is a rare commodity. Faith is the in-between space where you are not sure you will make it to second level. You have to let go of one thing, even if you haven’t yet latched on to the other.

To fast is to do without food.  Its purpose is to experience the effects of not eating.  It also serves to be a penance or a sacrifice - for the purpose of strengthening us.  When we don't eat, for even a little while, we get hungry.  When we get hungry, we have a heightened sense of awareness.  If, when we eat too much, we have a sluggish feeling, when we fast, we have a feeling of alertness.  Fasting is a wonderful exercise whenever we want to sincerely ask for an important grace from God.  It is not that our fasting "earns" God's attention, but by fasting, we clarify our thinking and our feeling.  It is purifying and prepares us to pray more deeply.

Theme: Be purified and be reconciled with God

My brothers and sisters in Christ, today we are entering a new season, one of penance and mortification. Together, we have gathered here to celebrate Ash Wednesday, the first of forty days of the Lenten Season that precedes Easter. On this special occasion, we are called to be reconciled to God. Through the sacramental of ashes that is symbolic of penance, we are reminded that we as sinners are but dust and ashes cf. Genesis 18:27

Today, in preparation for the joy of Easter that approaches, we need to call upon the mercy of the Lord Jesus, asking Him for His blessings and forgiveness for the Heavenly Father does not want us to die but to live with the risen Christ who reigns forever and ever. As such, through the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, we ought to prepare ourselves to celebrate the death and glorious Resurrection of Christ our Saviour by being cleansed from our sins through a renewal of spirit.

Theme: Work and prayer must be our choice

What do you do for a living? What are you going to do when you grow up? Questions like these have launched many a conversation. But, far from simply being ‘ice-breakers’ or ‘small-talk’, questions like these probe an elemental aspect of the human experience. Why? Because these are not fundamentally questions about jobs and pay but questions about life. . . my life, your life. Work is whatever we put ourselves into, whatever we expend energy on for the sake of accomplishing or achieving something. Ideally, work is not what we do for a living but what we do with our living.

Fortunate are those whose work is a fulfilling and worthwhile expression of their talents and character. Personally, I have always felt most privileged in that, for all of my adult life, I have been either teaching Catholic faith or writing about it. For me, this has been a labor that I thoroughly enjoy and in which I find ever-growing fulfillment. I have often compared myself to a tennis player who spends their day at a game they love and makes a living at it! However, I am well aware that mine is not a universal experience.

For many people, work is a burdensome task which is unhappily carried out because life’s necessities demand that it be so. There are many who must spend hours each day, year in and year out, at a job which is unfulfilling in order to put food on the table, pay for life demands and put fuel in the car. How can such work bring meaning or joy to life? How can it be an adequate expression of a person’s unique gifts and personality? Obviously it cannot, but there is a remedy to this seemingly irreparable situation. While one may not be able to leave the job or the work is required to do, it is possible to change the attitude with which work is approached and accomplished.

Why the liturgy?

In the Symbol of the faith the Church confesses the mystery of the Holy Trinity and of the plan of God's "good pleasure" for all creation: the Father accomplishes the "mystery of his will" by giving his beloved Son and his Holy Spirit for the salvation of the world and for the glory of his name.

Such is the mystery of Christ, revealed and fulfilled in history according to the wisely ordered plan that St. Paul calls the "plan of the mystery" and the patristic tradition will call the "economy of the Word incarnate" or the "economy of salvation."

A) ORIGIN OF THE ROSARY:

The word “ROSARY” originates from the word roses and a rose is the most beautiful flower we have that is why it is regarded as queen of all flowers like the way lions are regarded as kings of all animals in the jungle.
