Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Mar 1, 2019
My Dear Parish Family,
On Wednesday we will enter into the Season of Lent. As we think about what practice of penance we will embrace it is often easier to come up with penances for our spouse, children, colleagues, or friends than it is for ourselves. Jesus knew the human propensity to point out others’ faults. He counsels “Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; / then you will see clearly / to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.”
Perhaps this year you might invite a trusted friend or family member to help you in choosing a Lenten practice. Receive feedback with an open mind and then ask God to help you discern what will be the most fruitful practice for you this Lenten Season.
In Christ’s Peace,
