Jesus asks that we not advertise all we do at this time of the year. We can give to the poor, we can pray, and we can fast all without drawing attention to ourselves. But what about Christian witness? Jesus urges us to not be like the Pharisees; to not appear to be self-righteous by drawing attention to our actions.
- There's nothing wrong with living our faith openly.
- There's nothing wrong with walking around all day long with a smudged ash cross on our foreheads (or our clothes). Just don't go around pointing at it telling people that we are better than they are since we went to Mass and they didn’t.
- We don't need complain about being hungry or how we can't have fajitas because it's Friday.
- If someone sees you making a donation to help the poor, great! Brag not, however.
Christian witness or the pride of the Pharisees?

ROME (CNS) -- The medical team at Rome's Gemelli hospital, after evaluating the results of the Pope Francis' latest tests, confirmed he can be discharged April 1.
The 86-year-old pope had been showing continued and "marked" improvement for what tests revealed was a case of bronchitis, after he was admitted to the hospital the afternoon of March 29 for breathing difficulties. The pope was treated with intravenous antibiotics for the respiratory infection that was not COVID-19.Read More
The Catholic Home Missions Appeal Strengthens the Church from Alaska to Alabama
03/31/23 7:30 am
WASHINGTON - On the weekend of April 29-30, Catholics across the United States are invited to give to the Catholic Home Missions Appeal of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) when their dioceses take up the Appeal. This annual collection supports dioceses in the United States and its territories where it is difficult to sustain basic, essential ministries because of challenges posed by geography, population, or economy. These basic pastoral services include Mass, the sacraments, religious education, and training for clergy and lay people to minister to the local faithful.
“In Alaska, courageous missionary priests from as far away as Nigeria travel through ice and snow by seaplane and snowmobile to serve remote churches scarcely larger than mobile homes,” said Bishop Shawn McKnight of Jefferson City and chairman of the USCCB’s Subcommittee on Catholic Home Missions. “God does not measure the vitality of our faith by the quality of our stained glass or the height of the arches in the naves of our churches. When he sees the faithful traveling large distances during extreme weather conditions to worship and receive the sacraments in a small, simple chapel, God sees a treasure greater than gold.”Read More
