Today is Saturday in the 5th Week of Lent, Passion Week.
We hear today about the ancient Roman Station, the site of an attempted murder, a thought from Benedict XVI about who can ascend the mountain of the Lord, something from St. Basil on fasting like a champ, and the usual collects.
From St. Basil:
Like worms that germinate in the intestines of children and need to be driven out by the bitterest of medicine, so sins that abide in the depths of the soul are killed by fasting—provided it is truly worthy of being called such—as soon as it touches the soul.
Pray for Pope Francis.

This is by Blue Highway on their album Wondrous Love (that’s the mp3 download link – CD HERE – and those of you in the UK and Canada can paste the album name into the search box at the bottom of the blog for a good link).
Enjoy listening to it with some Mystic Monk Coffee!
