Next Sunday is Palm Sunday.
I can’t believe Easter is almost here, just two more weeks. Weather permitting, we will bless the palms outside church next Sunday and then process into church. The following week then is Holy Week, the most special week of our church year. You should already have received in the mail the Holy Week schedule. There are many highlights and special among them for many of us is the washing of the feet on Thursday, the veneration of the cross on Friday and the baptisms of our new converts on Saturday.
I hope you kept up your Lenten resolutions of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. I often wonder what percentage of us actually make and keep Lenten promises. I wouldn’t dare ask for a show of hands on Sunday though I am tempted! In the past, there have been some Lents that have gotten away on me. For one reason or another life got too busy and before I knew it, I was half way into Lent and felt I had the excuse that it was too late.
The beautiful thing about us Catholics is that, as long as we have breath in our bodies, it is never too late. Even now, if you did nothing for lent so far, there are two weeks left. It’s never too late to forgive, to pay back what we owe, to get rid of a grudge, to correct a lie or ………. to pray, fast and give alms.
God bless you all,
@ St. B's
