March Newsletter


The Opus Dei website is offering a free ebook --  "I have called you friends,"  developing the themes on friendship drawn from a recent text by our Prelate, Msgr. Fernando Ocariz. 

The Catholic Information Center offers recorded homilies and other Lenten resources.
 As we anticipate the feast day of St. Joseph on March 19, these quotes from The Way can feed our devotion to that great saint:

Saint Joseph, father of Christ, is also your father and your lord. Ask him to help you.

The Way, 559

Saint Joseph, our father and lord, is a teacher of the interior life. Place yourself under his patronage and you'll feel the effectiveness of his power.

The Way, 560

There is an interesting apologetical article on the Opus Dei website, Why does God allow evil to happen?   To summarize: "No matter how great and incomprehensible life’s tragedies may be, the creative and re-creative power of God is much greater."
