Our Scripture Readings speak to us today about suffering and infirmity. In our First Reading Job tells us that our life is a drudgery and full of suffering. In the Gospel this weekend Jesus heals Peterโ€™s Mother-in-law and the village people who come to Peterโ€™s home seeking healing. Jesus shows us that God is not indifferent to our suffering, but that He is there with us. He not only is with us, he takes away the suffering of those who sought Him in the Gospel. Our God is with us in our sufferings and struggles. May we turn to him with our sufferings, trusting in His healing and loving presence!

It is hard to believe that Lent begins next week. Ash Wednesday is Wednesday, February 14th. We will have Mass on that day at 9:00 AM at Whitney Point and at 6:00 PM in Marathon. Ashes will be distributed that day during these masses. We will also be distributing ashes at a prayer service at 12:00 PM in Cincinnatus. Make your plans now to begin the Lenten season by attending Mass on Ash Wednesday. Also, please remember that Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence for all Catholics between the ages of 18-60.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
