Confessions - March, 17th 2021 at 5pm in Blanchardville
Now we are in the Holy season of Lent. Like we heard in the gospel last weekend, ‘This is the time for fulfillment and repent and believe in the gospel.’ This is an apt and right time to figure out for ourselves where we stand before God. The simple question would be, “Is God in my list of to-do things?” If not, friends, I urge everyone (parents, all the Religious Ed children, the communicants, all the confirmands) to have a good look at and do a sincere examination of conscience, make a better choice and make a move to come to Him and create space for the confession. Confession is a treasure. It’s fulfilling and there are so many benefits. Unless and until one uses it, it’s hard to find and experience God’s treasure of forgiveness, mercy and love.
There will be a couple of Priests assisting and so take the beautiful opportunity to mend our lives and take a turn to stay with Him all the times and continue to long for Him always, even if it might be difficult sometimes. Let’s all go and pour out to the Lord in the Confession.
Stations of the Cross will be prayed at the following times:
Tuesday after 4:00 p.m. Mass in Argyle
Wednesday after 8:00 a.m. Mass in Blanchardville
Friday after 8:00 a.m. Mass in Hollandale
St. Isidore uses a program called Flocknote to communicate with parishioners, via e-mail and text message, regarding cancellations that are weather related, etc. If you are not receiving these communications, it is because either Flocknote does not have your correct e-mail address, or cell phone number, or does not have either listed. Please contact Sue Madson at email@example.com with your updates

We invite you to stay informed at https://madisondiocese.org/safehavensunday and learn more about how to protect and guide your family in the internet age.
Food For Thought
Forgive & Forget . . . . . . . . . . . Lewis B. Smedes, p. xi
"Somebody hurt you, maybe yesterday, maybe a lifetime ago, and you cannot forget it. You did not deserve the hurt. It went deep, deep enough to lodge itself in your memory. And it keeps on hurting you now.…
Forgiveness is God’s invention for coming to terms with a world in which, despite their best intentions, people are unfair to each other and hurt each other deeply. He began by forgiving us. And he invites us all to forgive each other.
Forgiving is love’s toughest work, and love’s biggest risk.…"
