Sign of the Times

Lent is the time of year when the Church asks us to take a deep breath and begin to taste the gifts of life once more, the parts of life that bring the inner mystic in each of us alive.

Lent gives us the space we need to refresh our hearts and quiet our souls in expectation of beginning again to live life well.

We are invited to become conscious of our blessings, and to savor the goodness of the God who is with us always, who carries us beyond ourselves.

Pope Francis has declared Ash Wednesday a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Ukraine. As we begin the 40-day Lenten journey, may we hold the people of Ukraine, and all people suffering from political injustice and war, in our moments of prayer, fasting, and care for others.
