Please pray for the men who are gathering at the Formation House in Chicago this weekend for a C.PP.S. Lenten Discernment Retreat. The retreat begins today and ends on Sunday. It will be an opportunity for men in discernment to enter into a spirit of Lent together and take time to listen to the Lord’s continuing call to holiness.

"God wants to be involved in everything in our lives, not just your ministry, not just your church stuff," he said. "He wants you to bring him into everything. Jesus cares about everything in your life, every moment of your day. Get used to hanging out with Jesus all the time, not just when somebody is watching."

May God bless you as you follow your call, Deacon Matt!
