Winter Greetings! I’m already finished with winter and we are just getting
started, I am definitely not cold tolerant. However, I do like to have one good snow,
especially if I can stay home and enjoy the warmth with a mug of cocoa and a fire in
the fireplace. It’s a very good thing we live close to the station though because I
really do not like driving in it.
Ash Wednesday is February 14 this year and Easter is on April 1. I held on to
Christmas for longer this year, so I need to get moving on my Lenten plans. I will be
continuing with the Nineveh 90 so that takes care of my penitential portion but I
want to define a little more the spiritual aspects that I want to undertake specifically
for the Lenten season. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
I received a picture of a family visiting Branson this Christmas and they were
wearing Covenant Network shirts and sweatshirts. I think it would be fun to post
pictures of people wearing their Covenant Network shirts from interesting locations,
so if you are interested in sharing pictures of you in any of your Covenant Network
hats or shirts and don’t mind me posting them, please send them to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. How far away can we take them?
We would also like to begin including the recently deceased in our 3 o’clock Chaplet
of Divine Mercy. If you would like us to recognize a family member on air before the
beginning of the Chaplet, please give us a call before noon each weekday and we
will do our best to make the request for everyone to include in their prayers.
You should have received a Statement of Contributions in the mail if you made a
donation to Covenant Network in 2017. If you haven’t received it by the end of the
month please contact us and we will get another copy to you. Thank you so much
to everyone who supported the apostolate in 2017! We are most grateful for your
generosity and hope that you will continue to support Covenant Network in 2018!
I hope you have a blessed Lent and a safe, healthy winter. May God bless you!
Sincerely in Christ,
Teresa M. Holman
