Message from Father Rick

                                                                                    March, 2015

Dear Parishioners,
 
I walked past my garden today, snow and icy wind whipping around me, and noticed that I couldn’t even see the angel statue that stands at the head of my garden.  The poor little guy can’t be too happy with all this snow!  I think we all can relate.  The winter has completely overwhelmed us this year.  Heavy laden roofs, slippery roads, and record breaking cold make us feel like we’ve been through the ringer.  We endure, however, because we know that SPRING follows winter and the thought of what awaits us inspires perseverance.  
 
Lent can be compared to winter.  It is a season where we slow down, contemplate, pray and fast.  We place ourselves in a space where we remember His sacrifice, passion and death.  It can be a difficult place to sit but it is a necessary one.  When we choose to reflect on Christ’s passion we choose to look at the sacrifices He made for us.  We contemplate His incredible ability to love unconditionally, endure resolutely, sacrifice completely, and stay faithful through whatever the world threw at him.  He is our example, and the one we all aspire to model.  Christ reminds us that life will have trials but if we are able to focus on the amazing reality that awaits us, we’ll be able to stay strong.  Through His witness, He inspires us to persevere through trial, live with compassion, sacrifice for others and love as much as we are able.  
 
Lent reminds us to not get so mired in the day to day realities of our lives that we forget to think of the RESURRECTION. 
 
Wishing you a transformative Lent!
Fr. Rick
