Dear Parish Family,
We are now into the third week of the Season of Lent. This Sunday’s Gospel prepares us to hear Lent’s call to conversion and repentance.
Jesus’ calls us to repent. Repentance means the strong resolve to remove the occasion of sin. Jesus says God’s mercy is great, but now is the time to repent! In the parable of the fig tree which was given an extra year to yield fruit or else be cut down, the message of Jesus is that although God’s mercy is unlimited, our time on earth is limited; so now is the time to repent.
In these days of Lent, let’s reflect on our priorities and what changes may be needed to ensure that God’s will is on the top of the list.
God Bless you as we journey through this Lenten Season,
