THE HOLY MASS/LA SANTA MISA
“Todas las buenas obras en el mundo no se igualan al Santo
Sacrificio de la Misa porque aquellas son obras de los
hombres; pero la Santa Misa es obra de Dios. El martirio es
nada en comparación, porque este es el sacrificio del
hombre a Dios; pero la Santa Misa es el sacrificio de Dios
para el hombre.” - San Juan Vianney

"All the good works in the world are not equal to the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass because they are the works of men; but
the Mass is the work of God. Martyrdom is nothing in com-
parison for it is but the sacrifice of man to God; but the Mass
is the sacrifice of God for man." - St. John Vianney

STATIONS OF THE CROSS FRIDAYS


Father will lead the faithful in the
praying the STATIONS OF THE
CROSS every Friday of Lent
immediately after the 6:30pm
Mass in the church on 20th
Street. This is a beautiful Lenten
devotion which is highly recom-
mended by saints and holy popes.
STATIONS will also be prayed
at 7:30pm in front of the Long
Beach Abortion mill located at
2777 Long Beach Blvd. Please
join us.

FAST & ABSTINENCE DURING LENT


Abstaining from meat (“meat”
includes poultry) is obligatory on
Ash Wednesday and all Fridays
of Lent (those who are 14 yrs or
older are bound by this law).
Fasting is obligatory on Ash Wednesday & Good
Friday for anyone who is at least 18 yrs and not yet
59. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength,
may be taken; but together they should not equal an-
other full meal. Eating between meals on these days is
not permitted, but liquids are allowed. Obviously, the
sick, pregnant women and the elderly are exempt from
these regulations.
