A Note from the Padre

My dear Brothers and Sisters. Last Wednesday we entered a sacred time for reflection, discernment and hopeful expectation; we entered into Lent. We begin the journey in the second week of Lent expanding our hearts and minds. How will Christ impact my life? How will I reflect the face of Christ in my world? Why the cross? I encourage you to read the Lessons for this coming Sunday. Jesus loses his temper with Peter and points to the Cross. Ask yourself, Where are the crosses in my life? As we reflect on the cross, the Second Sunday of Lent, we begin the Stations of the Cross this Wednesday at St. Francis. Come spend 45 minutes in prayer and reflection. We take turns reading and in someway carrying the cross for one another. Be blessed my dear fellow sojourners, and I hold you in prayer. Fr. Daniel (Padre)

First Lesson Genesis
17:1-7,15-16

 

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram,
and said to him, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless. And I
will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly
numerous.’ Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, ‘As for me, this
is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations.
No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have
made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly
fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. I will
establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you
throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and
to your offspring after you. God said to Abraham, ‘As for Sarai your wife, you
shall not call her Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. I will bless her, and
moreover I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall give
rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.’
