    Create a Clean Heart in Me, Oh God! Lent is not only a preparation for Easter, but also an annual invitation from God to review our spiritual health. It is a time to refocus on our continual conversion, and a time for us to reflect on our baptismal promises. In paragraph one of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it explains that God created us so that we could share in His blessed life. God wants us to draw closer to Him and He invites us to seek Him, to know Him, and to love Him with all of our strength. God calls everyone together into the unity of His family, the Church. Moreover, since each family is its own domestic church, and since every member of our family is part of the Body of Christ (the Church), it follows that God calls our families to have a unity of purpose as well. God wants each member of our family to assist one another in spiri-tual growth. Sometimes we require even more self-discipline to exercise spiritually than when we exercise our physical bod-ies. That is why it is often extremely helpful for us to have spiritual workout buddies, and the members of our family can help with that or, if you live by yourself, develop a spiritual buddy with someone else in our parish. By working together, we can grow closer to God. Here are just a few ideas: Pick a day or an evening to volunteer together as a family

    or with a spiritual buddy. Attend Eucharistic Adoration together. One evening a week, fast from media together. Watch a movie about a saint together. Participate in Stations of the Cross together. Go to confession together.

    Stewardship Awareness Go forth from the land of your kinsfolk and from your fathers house to a land that I will show you. Genesis 12:1 God calls all of us to leave behind our old ways and to follow Him, placing our complete trust in Him. Some of the old ways that we may have to struggle to leave behind might be materialism, selfishness and greed. Yet God promises to show us a new land, a better place than the rat race we often live in now.
