Happy Lent! During this special season of grace we are reminded that we are pilgrims, travelers, along the way, back home – to God. We are invited to participate in a more intentional way, our friendship and relationship with our God. You might be asking, “Well, how do I do
this, or how can I practically practice what I believe?” I’m glad that you asked.
In this weekend’s bulletin you’ll find a quick and easy “how to” approach for the six weeks of Lent. The idea is to try and attend to one specific task, per week. The themes are as follows: Mass, Sacraments, Prayer, Acts of Service, Fasting and Spiritual Reading. The invitation, for example, under week one, is to try and attend a daily mass, during the week. In doing so, we are intentionally trying to respond to the gracious call that God offers us through his son, Jesus. The next 40 days, this wonderful adventure of faith, can be an incredible opportunity, if we allow Jesus to be the center of our life. My prayer for you, for our faith community, is that we once again, with grateful hearts and open spirits, return to God’s love.
May you be blessed!
