As my school is on break for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday, this is the last Lenten Journey Journal of this year. See you again on Easter Tuesday!
As I mentioned in another post, I’m including a couple of special slides with prayers and reflections related to the USCCB’s Nine Days for Life , including this reflection posted recently by Fr. James Martin, S.J.
Classes resume tomorrow and so it’s time for these presentations to return.

Today we remember not one saint, but many! I learned about this special day on the Church calendar from a guest who spoke to my classes today.
