Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
A few days ago, we entered the Lenten Season. On Ash Wednesday, the priest imposed ashes on our foreheads and told us to "Turn away from sin and be faithful to the gospel." In preparation for the glorious Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ that will be celebrated on Easter Sunday, for 40 days, we are called to turn to prayer, to show remorse for our sins, to do almsgiving and self-denial.
One way to achieve these goals is to partner with another member of the Catholic Church. This permits Catholics to support one another in the challenges that Lent has to offer towards spiritual growth. Such a partnership can be between spouses, between brothers and sisters, between friends, Church members or even working associates.
During February, I added a webpage with links to the Rosary on MP3. Take the time to check out those links and download on your computer the Rosary of your choice. You will find a great variety. Follow the link to the webpage that is found below under "Rosary on MP3."
Regarding the support of the mission in India, concern has been expressed about having to write a letter to the Bank with the mailing of a cheque in order to provide all the information, over and above some members of the Church not knowing how much it cost in postage to send a letter to India. Consequently, only one donation was received in 5 months. To simplify the matter for those who still want to send a donation to the Mission in India, you can now mail your cheque to the Catholic Doors Ministry address that is found on the website. Once a month, the cheques that are received, they will forwarded to the Bishop of the Diocese of Kannur in India for processing.
Also, donations by Credit Card will now be accepted. If you go the webpage that promotes the Diocese of Kannur (India) Campaign, you will see a PayPal button. By clicking on the button, you will be taken to a secure website that processes Credit Card donations.
Wishing you all a spiritual enriching Lenten Season that will elevate you to sainthood for the glory of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
In the loving Heart of Jesus,

ROSARY ON MP3
There are many who like to listen to the Rosary on television and the radio. Then there are those who like to listen to it on their computer. Find audio files (MP3) on the internet is not always that easy. During the past month, I located 12 different Rosaries for a total of 48 Chaplets. I then created a webpage on which I put the links to all those different Rosaries. Now you only have to click on the link and listen to the Rosary of your choice, some with musical background, some without, etc.. You may enjoy the webpage at: http://www.catholicdoors.com/misc/rosaryonmp3.htm____________________________
