FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – FEB. 22ND, 2015

It’s hard to believe that we have begun this Holy Season of Lent; Lent is a time when we acknowledge our dependence upon God and our need for repentance!

On Ash Wednesday we heard in our readings that “now” is the acceptable time to be renewed in our relationship with Christ. We only live in the “now”. The past us history and the future is uncertain. Only today we can know for sure. Today, the Lord wants to be a part of our lives. Today, the Lord wants to offer us his love. Today presents the opportunity for us all to pray more, to be faithful to Mass and frequent confessions.

I encourage all of you to take part in our many parish programs and retreats so that we might “today” experience God’s presence in our lives,

A Blessed Lent.
