We had a great time last Sunday!!! We continued to watch "One Night with the King" about Queen Ester to see the power of fasting and prayer in this Lenten season. Through Queen Ester's petition of fasting of prayer, God saved His chosen people from the hands of their persecutors. May we imitate her example and enter into a deeper ascetical life this Lenten season for spiritual protection. "Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour." (1 Peter 5:8)

"Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw his mother* and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home." (John 19:25-27)
