Ember Saturday

Today is Ember Saturday, a reminder that it is a day of partial fasting (one full meal, two smaller ones and you can have meat).  The observance of Ember Days, though not a "requirement" in the USA, is still recommended for the faithful.  For more articles on Ember Days, click here.

Let us also take a moment to remember Margaret "Maggie" O'Hearn, who passed away on February 15, 2016.  Especially remember her in Mass this week.  Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, may her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.

Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
