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.
