Can you believe that Ash Wednesday is less than a week away??
We’re not ready, but the Lord will still do his thing! It’s easy to feel adrift, distracted, and disconcerted with all that’s going on in the world. But God continues to guide all things and, as Julian of Norwich asserted, “all will be well!”
We’re excited to be traveling quite a bit during the Lenten season, and we ask your prayers for us in our health and our ministry, that we can continue to preach the Good news of Christ effectively to the young people we’ll be encountering. (A prayer request as well for our baby due late May!)
If you’d like to see what we’ve been up to, here are some of our latest media outings:
- We were interviewed for Omnes, a Catholic newspaper in Spain, on the topics of marriage, vocation, and Theology of the Body. You can read the interview here!
- Our latest podcast interview with Lauren Scharmer is live! We talk with our friend Lauren about her work as a licensed counselor and focus in on how we can support the priests in our lives. You can watch the conversation on YouTube, or listen on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
- Jackie talked with our friend Lisa Cotter about how all women, regardless of age or vocation, are called to motherhood. Watch their discussion on Ascension Presents!
- Bobby also finished a manuscript for a book that will be coming out this Fall…more info to come about that later!
As we look ahead to the Lenten Season, we pray that you all feel an increase in peace and knowledge that the Lord is inviting us to an ever-deepening relationship. The penances and hardships we endure (voluntarily or not) are always a chance to have our wills transformed to be in closer conformity with Christ. And only with God can we live in our true identity as beloved sons and daughters of the Father who cares for and is always watching over us.
