Messages of penance and renewal resounded at Holy Family Catholic Church during its noontime Ash Wednesday Mass, signaling the start of the 40-day Lenten season. The season of Lent gives parishioners a chance to offer repentance for their misdeeds through prayer, fasting and alms giving in anticipation of Easter Sunday, Holy Family Pastor Joseph Shea said. “We are in need of repentance,” he said. “We’re not perfect and we need to be reminded of that.

What advice do you give your congregants for God to take a greater role in their lives? Are there Bible studies, retreats, or service projects in your church that help your congregants turn their lives toward God? ? A deep desire to know God brings the comforting awareness of His Goodness into our lives. We?re all equipped with free will. Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science wrote, ?Man is a conscious, self-knowing mind, equipped with volition and choice; he is an individual and can do as he chooses.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." (Ephesians 5:31). I found a clear illustration of this Scripture when I became friends last year with Shari Robbins of La Canada Flintridge. We had lived in the same neighborhood for 10 years and, believe it or not, had never met. When she shared part of her life story with me, I was amazed at all she and her husband had been through.

On Friday night friends, family and community members joined together at the Roger Barkley Community Center to celebrate Ramadan with the La Cañada Flintridge Islamic Congregation. From Sept. 13 to Oct. 12, Muslims of the Islamic faith recognize Ramadan by fasting from sunrise to sunset. It is a time of retrospect and life renewing for the faithful, a time to look inward to reevaluate how they are helping others. It is also a time to gather with friends and celebrate their faith.

When was the last time you were disappointed? I mean, really let down? I am not talking about the kind of disappointment that may occur when your friend cancels a much-anticipated event with you. I am writing of the type of disappointment that leaves you feeling as if you were kicked in the chest ? the kind that lingers for days or even weeks. It is this kind of disappointment that can change our personality temporarily and affect how we relate to others. As we grow older, and hopefully mature, most of us learn to anticipate and cope fairly well with disappointment.

"God, our wise and creative Maker, has been pleased to make everyone different and no one perfect. The sooner we appreciate and accept that fact, the deeper we will appreciate and accept one another." -- Chuck R. Swindoll "I never thought I needed God. I thought I had life under control," a young man said with a shaky voice to his friend. The two walked behind me into church Sept 14 for the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance. "But then the world fell apart, and I feel like I'm falling apart, and I don't know what else to do but turn to God," hecontinued.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN Have you ever been in the midst of a fight with someone you love and thought, "I do not even like this person right now." When we disagree with someone, we may feel they are unlovable. But we are still called to demon- strate love. I Corinthians 13:4-5 tells us, "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs" (Holy Bible, New International Version)

Many charities have reported a decrease in the amount of donations received due to the poor state of the economy. In what ways can people be charitable even if they are not able to give monetarily? Perhaps it is time to think differently about ways in which we can support charities. Our Master Teacher, Jesus, praised the widow who gave her two copper coins (which amounted to one penny) to the temple treasury. She put in all that she had, her whole living. This story is commonly known as “The Widow’s Mite,” (Mark 13:43)

Fred Ortega Among the prayer petitions recited at Sunday morning's service at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Glendale was one that resonated with all churchgoers, particularly those born in the British Isles. "We offer our prayers to the people of England," the Rev. Mark Weitzel said during the service. He added that this Wednesday night's courtyard barbecue would be replaced by a special prayer service at 7 p.m. for the victims of Thursday's subway and bus bombings in London.
