What does the Letter of James have to tell us about the Lenten season? With help from Pope Benedict XVI and the readings of today's Mass, we can discern a calling to the spiritual works of mercy -- not only as the external work of the Church, but even more as the internal work of the Church. This Lent remember: "We're in this together!"
(This video is based on the Scripture reading from Vespers for the day filmed for a recent class. As an assignment, it was intended to simulate preaching on this reading for a parish group. But I thought anyone might find what I preached useful for their spiritual lives. Enjoy!)
