He who follows Me
shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

May the reflections and readings in this calendar remind us that every minute of every hour of every day is for God. When we focus on the true meaning of fasting, we more fully feast on God’s blessings in our lives and in the lives
of those around us.
