On the eve of Ash Wednesday, join Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak as he discusses Lent and the upcoming Lenten Radio Retreat that he will be hosting. The Church teaches that Lent is a time for us to grow closer to Christ. How can giving up sweets help us to do that? We'll discuss this and lots more on this episode of The Gary Zimak Show. Be sure to tune in and get ready to make this your BEST LENT EVER!
“If one member suffers, all suffer together” (1 Cor 12:26)
“Make your hearts firm!” (James 5:8) – Individual Christians
Today is the First Sunday of Lent, why is this important? Because for many of us who worship on Sunday it is the first Sunday after Ash Wednesday where we come to together as one to worship as we continue on this 40-day journey to examine ourselves and move to the next leve in our spiritual walk.
We are to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. Lent is a time of preparation for the death of Christ on Good Friday and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday (traditional accounts). It is a period of 40 days of repentance, with prayer, fasting, pentience, abstinence and confession to one another.
Fasting for certain periods of time, fasting from certain foods, but also fasting from other things and activities. Likewise, the giving of alms—not only through the distribution of money, but through the sharing of our time and talents.
The thoughts above are in part by the Lord Himself who touched (inspired) my heart through the words of The Pope (St. Francis) in his words to the Cahtolic Church.

Today is the beginning of the season of Lent, which is the 40 days prior to Easter. So many Christians observe this man made tradition and today we'll discuss why this isn't necessary, as well as other headlines of the day.
Today's episode is sponsored in part by The Chronopticus Chronicles.
Can you believe we're already in the 3rd week of Lent??
We've got another great episode tonight...In addition to how awesome we think we are...
1.) Catch up: Life review; Lent-y observations
2.) Potty Mouth Pastors--Religious Professionals and those 4-letter words... Can you say them? Should you not?
3.) Pop Culture-- what should religious professionals be in touch with? Should they be aware of things on TV like who Andy Cohen is or who Justin Bieber is dating?
4.) World Vision announced today that they are opening up their employment to GLBT Christians who are in legal marriages or agree to celibacy outside of marriage. This may have caused just a little bit of controversy... So, we'll add our two cents into the conversation as well!
Folks Lent is a time of Repentance which is known as Reconciliation. In this episode of the Christian Warrior Network the Oblong Table Crew will speak on humility, forgiveness and prayer.
This is an excellent show for the special reason that I will read a recent message posted to the Celtic Cross Ministry Blog (wwwcelticcrossministry.wordpress.com).

LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America. Guest Andy Bravo calls in to discuss the issues today. Today, I discuss the vast differences in the Culture of Life and its nemesis, the Culture of Death also known as the Culture of Anti-Life or the Culture of New Morality of Immorality. I introduce this topic as being important in these days of Lent especially for Latinos who are mostly Catholic. Today, I compare the issues of Abortion, Homosexual marriage and euthanasia as being examples of the new morality of immorality. For example, Homosexuality is clearly immoral but by seeking through the courts under the pretense of "Equal Protection under the Law" to nullify enumerable state laws the set the guidelines for the state to sanction marriages the homosexual community hopes to gain such sanctions and make their relationships "normal" and part of a new morality. In other words they have sought to cast anyone who disagrees with them as a bigot and immoral themselves for defend their own moral standings. Thus, I point out the "New Morality of Immorality" which is not unrelated to other machinations of the culture of death or anti-life which also favors abortion on demand and euthanasia. How many cultures have practiced these horrific and immoral behaviors? Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, America in the days of the Indian Wars and many more. Today, in America, as I read there are expanding efforts to promote euthanasia which my caller, Andy Bravo mistook for End of Life Palliative care. That is why I discuss these issues so that Latinos in America will be well informed.
One of the most visible signs that identify Catholics together as a group is “The Sign Of The Cross” which depicts the cross as a sign and a prayer of the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
In Baptism, we are given a mark sealed by the Trinity. Jesus instructs the Church to Baptize the nations in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. The Sign of the Cross reflects this mark given to us at our Baptism. Just as in the time of Ezekiel, we have a choice to follow God or follow the way of the world.
The book of Revelation also speaks of another mark on the forehead of those who reject God. We definitely do not want this mark! Through the Sacraments, we are made clean so that before the Lord, we are made innocent (Rev 14:4-5). Just as it was in the day of Ezekiel, we have a mark that is like the original “X” and it is made into a “+”.
On this Third Sunday of Lent, we experience a preview and a review of baptism. Water abounds in our readings, and the elect throughout the world are celebrating the first scrutiny in preparation for their baptism. As we move through our celebration today, we may want to reflect on what we are thirsting for in our lives, and how God may act to slake that thirst.
Folks we have been talking about the importance of actively participating in the Holy Season of Lent this year. Well this Saturdays episode will be somewhat different in that we will be talking about how to be more charitable with your time and money. So be sure to tune in to this weeks broadcast of the Christian Warrior Network here at Celtic Cross Radio Ministry.
