Pastor’s Message: March 1, 2024

Dear Parishioners,

In this weekend’s Gospel, we read about how Jesus overturned the tables of the merchants and the moneychangers in the Temple at Jerusalem.

Jesus tells us that the real temple of God lies within us. His cleansing of the Temple in Jerusalem calls us all to cleanse ourselves.  We have the days of Lent to make a special effort to become more loving and to renew and deepen our covenant with God. It is about remembering our priorities.

This is a time of purification and penance, of prayer and fasting, of living alms and giving of ourselves, of doing without and turning away from the distractions of life to rediscover what it means to love God and love our neighbor – as we await the great feast of Easter.

God Bless as we Journey through Lent,
Pray for peace.
Fr. Cyrus
