    is saving me? Do I understand the gift I have been given? How am I willing to respond? Each of these elements can be cultivated in a single day. We have two weeks until Easter. Let us pray for each other and help each other to finish Lent well. You are in my prayers. Fr. Karl Pung

    Pray for Ireland As we are making patient strides towards ending abor-tion in our country, those same ideals are under attack in other places. Ireland will be having a referendum in May which if approved by the people, would remove the prohibition on abortion. Please keep the country in your prayers that they will not head backward into the darkness of legalized abortion. Let us send our prayers to their country and its leaders that their minds might be opened to the light of the Gospel and the value of all life. Thank you Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped to clean our pews and furniture in the Church on Wednesday.

Do not beat yourself up for your failures. Let go of venge-ance. Free your heart to move forward. The second is to have an attitude that it is not all about me. Am I looking to the needs of people other than myself? Do I live, act, and pray as if the universe revolves around the desires of God and not mine? Third is to have a sense of the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Do I know from what I have been saved? Do I know who
