Fr. Robert writes…


This weekend we celebrate the first Sunday of Lent. At this time we are remembering the forty days and nights that Jesus spent in the desert preparing
for his public ministry.

We too prepare ourselves over these forty days to renew our Baptism Vows and to be blessed with Easter water. Our preparations are like pruning a fruit tree. Pruning is not to cause damage to the tree, but to get rid of the dead and superfluous branches so that it can produce more and better fruit. Lent is like a pruning time or like a spring clean of the garden. There may be things in our lives that use up our energy and weaken our faith. Lent is a time to come in from the cold and experience God’s mercy and forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Like pruning the fruit tree, it is about cutting back what is life-wasting in order to experience God’s life-giving love and healing.

May the Lord help us on our Lenten journey so that we may be ready to renew our Baptismal promises at Easter.
