Jacob the Father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Messiah. Thus the total number of generations from Abraham to David is fourteen generations; from David to the Babylonian exile, fourteen generations; from Babylonian exile to the Messiah, fourteen generations. -Matthew 1:16-17

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent which prepares us for Holy Week and the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. Lent is a time of fasting and prayer that leads to a spiritual renewal of our soul.
Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael
"Please join in prayer for God's divine intervention to mitigate (end) violence throughout the world. It’s important now more than ever to pray for our nation and families, especially for people who are subjected to adversity and disrespectful behavior on a daily bases. Our world is in dire need of healing and peace - with prayer everything is possible." -Loci B. Lenar
