Dear CFC USA Family:
It’s the most beautiful season of Lent once again. By the time you read this, you are probably 2 weeks into Lent. So, it is time to ask yourselves – how are you doing with your Lenten plan… now you do have a Lenten plan or at the very least Lenten sacrifices or resolutions to help you deny yourself, to pick up Christ’s cross and follow Him? Don’t fret, this month’s ROH has a Lenten proposal/resolution that will be a true “life-changer” – Take the CFC Lenten Daily Mass Challenge!
The Catechism of the Catholic Church calls the Eucharist the “source and summit of our Christian life”. Nothing is more important. My challenge to you dear CFC brethren is to try your very, very best, at least the rest of the Lenten season, starting TODAY to attend DAILY Mass (the assumption here is that we as CFC never fail to miss Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation) to partake of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ! I understand it may be difficult for some of you because of work or other obstacles, however, what about trying to attend just one weekday Mass, at least for now.
To help you find the nearest church and the daily Mass schedules, make sure you check out and upload the iPhone/Smartphone app of the month TheCatholicDirectory.com.
In addition, you may attend the daily Mass at the EWTN channel (usually 9 pm) and receive a “Spiritual Communion”. Check your local listings for the channel and schedule. Be ready though to be surprised by God and amazed at the transformation, consolation and joy you will experience come Easter (and beyond) as you receive daily the Eucharist…the Real Presence.
Imagine, the whole CFC attending daily Mass…we, with God’s grace and the power of the Holy Spirit very much alive in us, can really renew the world for Christ!
Have a most blessed Lenten season!
Thank you, God bless…and be a Saint!
In Christ through Mary,
Bro Toffee Jeturian
