Pastor’s keyboard: St. Clair of Assisi write years ago, “We become what we love. And Who we Love shapes what we become. If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing. Imitation is not literal mimicking of Christ, rather it means becoming an image of the Beloved, an image disclosed through transformation. This means we are to become vessels of Gods compassionate love for others”. This is truly the work that Lent is meant to do within us and through us. It is impossible without the Lord’s grace. That grace comes through the sacraments in abundance, and through prayer, scripture, alms giving, acts of kindness, and fasting. Let us seek these aids to our further conversion and transformation and that of the world this Lent. Make this the best Lent of your life!
Your Brother and Father in Christ,
