Lenten Reflection


The Church regards the Season of Lent as a joyful time.  It is a time of renewal. It is a time of redirecting our efforts at becoming better disciples of Christ, better sons and daughters of a loving God, and more open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. The sacrifices, the extra and more fervent prayer, and the self-discipline we live during this season help us to focus our attention on the primary relationship of our lives. We are made for a loving relationship with a Triune God.

Let us pray for each other during this holy and joyful season. Let us encourage one another in our efforts. Let us be good examples to others. In this crazy world we live in, we have to be those examples of holy women and men. All of us are called to holiness and we pray that we answer that call to holiness well.
