Notes from Father Noesen

March 23, 2014

Dear Parish Family and Friends,

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 Him.

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...
