Rev Fr. Warner , Thank You for this nice piece of advice for the Lent Season , Needed it badly 🙂
Thank You for your Homily specially dwelling deep into Scriptures during Daily Mass this helped me a lot in understanding the scriptures more deeply than I ever knew it and helped me enrich my spiritual life in this Journey of following and loving JESUS and loving others.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thank you Austin for writing in. These comments both encourage me and motivate me to write more. God bless
Hi Fr. Warner, I would like to share that while Lent somehow has a very morose note to it, to me it has always been an outpouring of God’s love & endless mercy. Your thoughts in this article asserted my own beliefs.
You have truly enriched your online viewers spiritually. May you be blessed abundantly in your pastoral ministry.
Hoping you recover soon. Need to walk with you through the Lent!
You’ve always had this take on Lent and it’s one of the many insightful ways I remember you by!
It’s certainly helped me, over the years, shift how I view this period of time. I realised that Lent was first and foremost inward looking before any outward manifestation and not the other way around. So thank you for that!
