Today we begin the Third Week of Lent. I’m hoping that this is
turning out to be a beautiful time of spiritual renewal ~ a time to
repent and turn back to God, a time to grow in holiness.
I would encourage all to increase in prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Use
this beautiful season to prepare your heart for a good Confession. Nothing
would please the Lord more than turning to Him in this wonderful Sacrament,
confessing your sins, and deepening your relationship with Him. Especially
if you’ve been away from the Sacrament, I would encourage you to make this
Lent the time to return to the Lord with a repentant heart. The Lord is
waiting for you with great love, mercy, compassion and forgiveness. Ample
times are being provided for you to make a good confession… don’t disappoint
Lent offers us the perfect opportunity to grow in holiness ~ to deepen
our relationship with the Lord Jesus. Most especially in the Blessed
Sacrament, Jesus makes Himself really and truly present to us, under the
appearance of bread and wine. To grow in our relationship with someone, to
get to know them, to learn to love them we have to spend time together...
