The Most Important Decision in Life
The most critical decision is whether to choose Christ’s   loving Way of the Cross, or the soft, popular diabolical road of selfishness, evil and violence. Can we trust in God’s Infinite Mercy and return to the Good Shepherd?

Monday March 11 – Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7 pm.Clinging to Faith in a Godless Society
The greatest challenge is to live our faith, at all costs, within a materialistic, hedonistic, secular society that ignores God. We must trust God’s Infinite Mercy and His Mother Mary will lead us back to the All-Loving, All-Forgiving Jesus! 

Tuesday March 12 –  Mass:6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7 pm.
Maintaining Hope in Hopeless Situations
The most difficult task is to never lose hope, to fight off discouragement and depression even when you feel totally helpless in hopeless situations where nobody seems to care. You may feel abandoned, but remember Jesus will always be with you and you’ll never walk alone! 

Wednesday March 13 – Mass 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7 pm.
Building a Loving Home in a Selfish Society
The most difficult task is to create a Faith-filled, loving, family in a confusing, selfish, world that is struggling to cope with stress, drugs, violence, and pornography. It is essential to pray together as a family every day and beg our Blessed Mother’s to protect us from all the terrible temptations of our modern life.

Thursday March 14 – Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7pm.
Bringing Love to a Violent, Hateful Society
The most rewarding task is to become a missionary of Love and bring the Love of Christ to your family and your community. By Baptism, you are a missionary and you must bring the Merciful Christ to others. Our pagan world teaches us that happiness is found in becoming famous, rich, and enjoying all the sinful pleasures of our world. But our Merciful Lord is asking us to be humble, self-sacrificing and serve the poor. So “Take up your Cross and Follow Him”. Give yourself totally to Jesus!
