Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Lent 2021 is upon us already, can you believe it? We began this new year with the gift of a book called The Search by Chris Stephanick. It’s made available to us through the Augustine Institute under Formed.org I envision this to be the beginning of a spiritual renewal for every parishioner, young and old. I hope we will all have read or watched The Search before the first week of Lent.
On the first week of Lent, I am inviting you all to watch my good friend, Fr. Chris Alar on Explaining the Faith. He is now also on Formed.org. I would like all of us to watch him explain about the Mass. He is funny, engaging and inspiring- It is very important for us as Catholics to know the symbolic meaning of what we do at Mass, why we make the sign of the cross, why we stand, sit, kneel, genuflect, bow, etc.
Then for the rest of Lent, we will continue with Formed.org to watch The Forgiveness videos and learn more about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Every Tuesday of Lent at 7pm, while we have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and on the Fridays of Lent also at 7pm, during the Stations of the Cross, I will be available for anyone who wants to experience God’s mercy through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please, make use of this opportunity to begin this year of renewal with a clean heart.
After Easter, we will continue with Formed.org to watch the videos on The Presence. In these series, we will learn and study more about the Mass. The second Sunday of Easter is also called the Divine Mercy Sunday. We are going to formally introduce this devotion to the parish. If you want to know more about it, our friend Fr. Chris Alar will explain it all to us, also on Formed.org.
I am inviting each one of you to join me this Lenten season by cutting down on our TV time and concentrate on watching Formed.org so that we can all be spiritually renewed from the comfort of our own homes. May God bless us all in our journey of faith this Lent 2021! Be assured always of my prayers. Love you all!
Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession, explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God's love. By looking at God's revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God's invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
