Father Dominic Grassi and Joe Paprocki, Living the Mass (Loyola Press) Many Catholics believe that far more people would attend Mass if only the homilies were better, or the music was more inspiring, or . . . the list goes on.
But best-selling authors Fr. Dominic Grassi and Joe Paprocki are convinced that the real problem lies not in the Mass itself but in a lack of understanding of how the Mass prepares each person to live day in and day out as a baptized Catholic Christian.
In this revised edition of Living the Mass, which takes into account the changes in the new Roman Missal, Grassi and Paprocki thoughtfully explain how
each part of the Mass relates to our baptismal call, effectively closing the gap between Sunday Mass and the rest of the week. ... See MoreSee Less
Points to Ponder
Jesus was tired from his journey, so he sat by the well. Are you tired too? Where do you go to refresh yourself? Where do you find life-giving water? Prayer? Scripture? Time away from your caregiving tasks, if only for a half hour? Walk outside?
Just as Jesus waited for the woman at the well, God is always waiting for us. Patiently. he offers to us 'life-giving water". Do I realize that Jesus and His gift of Grace are waiting for me wherever I go?
The well, in this story, is symbolic for all the places we go to "fill" our needs - with honor, wealth, power, desire for love or affirmation, for example - for the women it was relationships with men. What are the holes that you are trying to fill with something other than God? Each time we try one of these things, we remain thirsty, but if we go to Jesus, he satiates our thirst completely. We will never thirst again if we go to Jesus in prayer, reading the Scriptures and receiving the Sacraments.
Live It Out
The woman left her buckets at the well and ran joyfully into town to share the good news. Set your bucket down. Put aside the anxious thoughts, worries, bitterness and let the life giving grace of God fill you today. Enjoy a cold beverage today, and as you sip, allow it to remind you of the Divine Life in you - the way you are that life-giving water to the one you care for. ... See MoreSee Less

Jesus, the Light of the world, came so that the blind might see…
Anna C Fisher
if you want to fast this Lent:
Fast from hurting words and say kind words
Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude
Fast from anger and be filled with patience
Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope
Fast from worries and trust in God
Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity
Fast from pressures and be prayerful
Fast from bitterness and fill your heart with joy
Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others
Fast from grudges and be reconciled
Fast from words and be silent so you can listen
[Attributed to Pope Francis]
Lord Jesus, give me the courage and strength to follow you this Lent. Open my heart to 'fast' from everything that does not lead me closer to you. Amen.
Live It Out
What first struck you in the "Fast from" list? Anger? Bitterness? Sadness?
How is the Lord calling you to let those negative emotions go so that He can replace them with Himself? How could a "Fast from" change your caregiving as it changes your outlook? ... See MoreSee Less

Caregivers, Strengthened in Scripture
God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
You, dear caregiver, are made in the image of God!
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you a prophet to the nations I appointed you. (Jeremiah 1:5)
From you inception, God knew you, and called you His own. You are treasured. Just as Jeremiah was dedicated as a prophet, so too, you are most uniquely qualified for your mission and vocation as caregiver.
See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. (1 John 3:1)
You are a child of God. You are loved and adored by God. God cannot love anyone more than He loves you. You! ... See MoreSee Less
