Next Sunday evening begins our Parish Mission with Fr. Ed Estok. It runs for 3 nights starting at 7pm each evening in the Church. I hope you will all take some time and give yourselves an opportunity for growth in the Lenten season. On this walk through Lent we might encounter the same old struggles day in and day out. We might also encounter the beauty of moments that put a smile on our face. Each one of us should have a Lenten program for our Lenten journey. I mentioned a few things a couple of weeks ago in my homily that I think we can look at again. An unknown author said we could, “Call someone who's lonely and say, ‘I'll be over tomorrow to take you to lunch or take you for a walk or run errands.’ Go to Confession. Smile more. Read the Gospels. Forgive an enemy. Love someone who doesn't deserve it. Quit smoking. Stop drinking. Lose weight. Be kinder than is necessary. Exercise. Live one day at a time; make it a work of art.” They are simple ideas but they can lead us to deeper reflection. It’s not too late to still begin a journey. I once read a quote that said, “The journey is the destination.” Keep on walking and don’t worry about the end just take another step. Hope & Peace.
