Sunday, February 23, 2020: Cheese Fare Sunday

Lent begins tomorrow – Strict Day of Abstinence: No Meat, Poultry, Eggs or Dairy Products

Once again we’ve entered into the Season of Lent. Once again, God through His Church calls us to a closer communion with Him. He invites us to spend a few extra minutes everyday to be with Him. If only we could know what a privilege that it! How blessed we are, as God’s children, to come to Him – not in fear, not out compulsion, but freely, joyfully, gratefully as a child come to the parent whom he loves and trusts.

During Lent, let us meditate on the loving sacrifice of Christ; let us meditate on the Stations of the Cross which remind us of the effects of our sins. But let us not forget all that Christ did, all that He endured was an act of the tremendous love He has for us. Let us not lose sight of the fact that the story does not end with the crucifixion, rather, it continues to Christ’s resurrection and our own.

May this Lent be a time of blessing – a time when you will be renewed in God’s grace, a time when you will experience new hope, greater peace and new joy in the Lord’s goodness and love.

Sunday, December 15th, 2019: Sunday of the Holy Forefathers

GOSPEL REFLECTION  –  “A man gave a great dinner to which he invited many. When the time for the dinner came, he dispatched his servant to say to those invited, ‘Come, everything is now ready.’ But one by one, they all began to excuse themselves.”  Luke 14:16-18

Reflect, today, upon God coming to you and inviting you to share more fully in His life of grace.  How is He inviting you?  In what way are you being invited to this fuller participation?  Do not make excuses.  Answer the invitation and enter into the feast.

Sunday, October 20th, 2019: 19th Sunday after Pentecost

Meditation for Today:

Reflect, today, on the natural desire you have in your heart for the love and respect of others.  Then, make this the focus of how you treat those around you.

Lord, help me to do to others what I desire they do to me.  Help me to use the desire in my own heart for love as the motivation for my love of others.  In giving of myself, help me find fulfillment and satisfaction in that gift.
