Bob and I are in Arizona conducting a parish mission at St. Stephen’s Church in Sun Lakes, AZ. Always a treat to conduct one together. Now that football is over and people start getting back to their regular lives it is a great time for a mission. While the winners are ecstatic and the losers begin waiting for next year, we are getting ready for LENT.
Lent provides us with an opportunity to grow in the love of God and each other. I hope this year’s Lent is a joyful, faith growing experience for you and your family. Next week when we celebrate Ash Wednesday, I pray that is a reminder that God is in charge and that we need His grace and love.
And now that football is over, people are already gearing up for baseball. I hope your Lent is a hit with God and that as you round the bases of your life on your way home, you won’t forget how you got there!
