Dear Parents and Guardians:
Lent is upon us… The most Holy of times in our Church year begins on Ash Wednesday. A time for us to prepare our hearts for the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. During his Lenten message, titled The Word is a gift… Other persons are a gift, Pope Francis has sent each of us a special invitation…
“Dear friends, Lent is the favorable season for renewing our encounter with Christ, living in his word, in the sacraments and in our neighbor.
Let us pray for one another so that, by sharing in the victory of Christ, we may open our doors to the weak and poor. Then we will be able to experience and share to the full the joy of Easter.”
This beautiful message from our Holy Father reminds us that Lent is the time for us to deepen our spiritual lives through acts of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. He reminds us that our faith is one which is meant to be lived in community with others and with our Church.
As we begin the season of Lent, I am reminded of the words of David Wells who spoke to our District staff at Faith Development Day. “Have a Gospel, a story in your life, a narrative that’s bigger than you”. One of the great gifts of our faith is our awareness that we are part of a larger context within which we have the opportunity to have a tremendous positive influence on each other. Let’s focus on bringing out the best in ourselves and each other every day.
May our Lenten observance be a joyful journey, and together, let us ask God for his graces throughout this Lenten season.
Wishing you a wonderful month of March!
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22: 37-39
