Share Lent 2021

It’s probably one of my favorite paintings. To me it embodies the gift of self and call to service of each individual Christian, showing up for work in “God’s vineyard”. In my own opinion it pairs most excellently with my favorite hymn:

“I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry...
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?”

Lent 2021

Published in Parish News

Names are important. They carry so much meaning in one word. In my job I often have to recall many different people’s names and I (almost) always get a smile if I remember them right. There is something about being called by your name. A name can be an emboldening experience, a recognition of identity and status - like expressing friendship, solidarity, communion.

Almsgiving in Lent

As I have observed, ‘Catholics are always ready to give God all the credit, but not their cash!’ Thus, Jesus reminds all of us of our duties as Christians. The Code of Canon Law states: “Christ’s faithful have the obligation to provide for the needs of the Church, so that the Church has available to it those things which are necessary for divine worship, for works of the apostolate and of charity and for the worthy support of its ministers” (canon 222, par. 1). When Jesus said, “The laborer deserves his wages,” he is also telling us, ‘Just as you pay the carpenters who build your house, so also you must support my messengers who maintain the upkeep of your souls and build my Church.’...

A Reflection on Deuteronomy 32:4

Life just sometimes feels like a roller coaster, doesn’t it? My February was certainly not what I expected and March seemed to fly right by. Now, on the doorstep of April, I can’t help but look back (even on just these two months) and be surprised by all there has been and is and all there is yet to be...

It's so simple

It’s Lent, the time when we give something up, a season for fasting. I remember the year my parents decided we were giving up TV for Lent. That felt like the longest Lent ever.

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that we are now immersed in the season of Lent. Just listen to the conversations going on among Catholic folks: “I gave up coffee for Lent.”   “Oh no thanks, I gave it up for Lent.”  “No chocolate for me, it’s Lent.”  “What did you give up for Lent?”   

Lent, at times, sure can seem to be the season of “giving things up.” But in Bishop Mark’s Ash Wednesday homily, which I found extremely insightful, inspiring, and profoundly powerful, he encouraged us to go further. He “dared” us to take the journey further this Lent; to go further than just giving up salty snacks, or coffee, or whatever...

Learning to Breathe

Here at the Parish office, a change in liturgical seasons is always a busy time. The last two weeks especially have been a little crazy: trying to get Ash Wednesday, Reconciliation times, our Penitential Service and Stations of the Cross organized and ready to go; looking forward to the Triduum and Easter and all the planning involved there – all of which goes on top of our regular weekly tasks and ongoing projects. It’s a bit of a wonder I’m still upright and coherent most of the time!

With all this busyness, I have been having a hard time getting ready for and in the mood of Lent...
