Importance of the Not-So-Important Stuff

with Fr. Robert Adams

A Practical Reflection for Your Lenten Observance

with Fr. Michael Earthman

As Catholics we know by heart that prayer, fasting, and alms giving are capital observances of Lent, and being accustomed to associating these practices with Lent can cause these practices to escape us.  But fear not!  In this episode we consider anew prayer, fasting, and alms giving with practical advice to execute them in our Lenten journeys this year.
