What IS this time of lent? What IS it for? Why?
We are called to change. You could call it a calling, a whisper, a sign, the Holy Spirit – a change in the wind. We recently have experienced this change, call it a calling, we call it an opportunity. An opportunity, in the end to help provide for our family. With this opportunity comes a lot of changes. One of those changes has already challenged us in our faith. We are finding ourselves changing parishes, priests, dioceses and feeling a bit lost currently. Not lost for the love of our faith. Even though the catholic faith is universal in the liturgy and the whole mass, it does feel different; different priest, different bulletin, different songs.
So our challenge is this change. Let’s focus on making a difference in our changes this year.
Since we went to Rome this past year and we were less than ten feet from Pope Francis, I feel we are close friends, so I am going to use his favorite phrase and say “Pray for us”.
