Lenten Thoughts to ponder
v Lent is a time to take time to let the power of our faith story take hold of us,
v a time to let the events get up and walk around in us,
v a time to intensify our living unto Christ,
v a time to hover over the thoughts of our hearts,
v a time to place our feet in the streets of Jerusalem or to walk along the sea and listen to his Word,
v a time to touch his
robe and feel the healing surge through us,
a time to ponder and a time to wonder….
Lent is a time to allow a fresh new taste of God! Perhaps we’re afraid to have time to think, for thoughts come unbidden. Perhaps we’re afraid to face our future knowing our past.
Give us courage, O God, to hear your Word and to read our living into it. Give us the trust to know we’re forgiven and give us the faith to take up our lives and walk.
The season of penance, sacrifice and preparation gives us the opportunity to reflect upon our immortal souls and free ourselves from the ravages of sin. A special Penitential Service will be held Saturday, March 17th at 11 A.M. Private confessions for youth and teens are held before/after each Sunday Mass. Adult private confessions are upon request any time.
This year, make the holy season of Lent meaningful by your presence, repentance and participation in this Year of the Family
