New Video – Starting Lent Right

I just uploaded the video and slides from my last presentation, Starting Lent Right, at

For the next few days you may complete an evaluation of the presentation online at

At one point in the presentation, I mention a document I have that outlines the scriptural origins of the Stations of the Cross. Click here to see that document.

During the video, one participant asked about past custom of Wednesday fasting/abstinence. I could not quickly find a distinct reason this practice was discontinued but here is a link to an interesting article on the topic – Given the origin of why it was done on Wednesdays with the false god Mercury, we could say no longer an issue today.

Now, a look ahead to my next series:
Finding Peace and Healing in a Troubled World – When we are physically ill, our bodies need healing.  We also need healing of our souls.  God offers healing through the Anointing of the Sick.  When we sin, we need forgiveness.  God forgives us in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  We have past hurts that need healing.  Fr. Jeff will offer a series of presentations addressing these topics (webinar at 6:30 pm) on March 10th, 24th, and April 7th. You can register for the first one on March 10th at


Fr. Jeff
