This month, on a day we usually celebrate the virtue of Love (February 14), we will celebrate the beginning of Lent. Ash Wednesday, beginning a season of Lent, preparing to celebrate the greatest act of Love, the Passion/Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, events that won for us, the possibility of Eternal Life which God intends for us.
Let us take this sacred time, to deepen our spiritual life through more prayer and worship (daily mass), more fasting from things we don’t need (food, alcohol), and more charitable works and giving of time and treasure to those in need.
If we do these three things, our celebration will be more than an Easter Sunday, but will be the beginning of a new Easter Life, that oh by the way, is ETERNAL!
May God bless us and may Mary keep us always in His love!
