Secure in Christ: First Sunday of Lent...

 First Sunday of Lent 
"Very few people believe in the devil these days, 
which suits the devil very well.  He is always 
helping to circulate the news of his own death.  
The essence of God is existence, 
and He defines Himself as: 'I am Who am.'  
The essence of the devil is the lie, 
and he defines himself as:  'I am who am not.'  
Satan has very little trouble with those who 
do not believe in him; they are already on his side." 
 Ven Fulton J Sheen, Life of Christ

Fr Thomas G Weinandy, OFM, Cap.

"What does Jesus Christ do in the Eucharist? 
It is God who, as our Savior, offers Himself 
each day for us to His Father's justice.

If you are in difficulties and sorrows, 
He will comfort and relieve you. 
If you are sick,
He will either cure you or give you 
strength to suffer so as to merit Heaven. 
If the devil, the world, and the flesh 
are making war upon you, 
He will give you the weapons with which 
to fight, to resist, and to win victory. 
If you are poor,  
He will enrich you with all sorts of 
riches for time and eternity.

Let us open the door of His sacred 
and adorable Heart, and be wrapped 
about for an instant by the flames of His love, and 
we shall see what a God who loves us can do. 
O my God, who shall be able to comprehend?"
St. John Vianney

"The Holy Eucharist is the perfect 
expression of the love of Jesus Christ 
for man." - St. Maria Goretti
