A good way to get the feel and have your hand on our Lord’s pulse would be to read the Readings and Gospel for each day in lent if daily Mass is not available.
Most of the main events that take place in Scriptures take place, from Lent to Pentecost Sunday, Creation of the World, Adam & Eve, The Passover, Ten Commandments, The Flood? The Annunciation, The Crucifixion, Resuurection, Opening of Heaven on Ascension Thursday, The Birthday of the Church & Christ’s Return on Pentecost Sunday. And I might add so should the Great Chastisement which precedes the Second Coming of Christ.
Grace be with you, In Christ, Joseph

Record numbers of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll support gay marriage, say adoption by gay couples should be legal and see gays and lesbians as good parents. Most oppose a right to refuse service to gays, including on religious grounds. And, by a closer margin, more also accept than reject gay marriage as a constitutional right. LINK

The magazine, whose name translates to “My Pope,” will go heavy on photography and colorful layouts, according to a news release from publisher Mondadori. It’s the first magazine entirely devoted to just one pontiff.
The magazine will include stories about people and events that inspire the pope; background information on papal remarks; a “saints of the week” column; a collection of international cartoons about the pope; and a list of that week’s television programs dedicated to issues related to faith and Christianity.
