If you are observing Lent by fasting and sacrificing something for yourself, you are not doing it fully. Fasting is not just giving something up, or other personal external motivations, but also prayer and giving alms to others. Let love persevere. St. Malachy's Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Friday, February 8, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

Jesus says: "If you wish to be my disciples, you have to pick up your cross and follow me." Lent is indeed a time to look at the positive aspects of your life, but it is also a time to recognize what is tough for you, and to bring these challenges with you on your journey with Christ. St. Malachy's Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Thursday, February 7, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

Ash Wednesday Mass, February 6, 2008, 6:15pm.
