As we begin the celebration of the Season of Lent, we withdraw into the “deserts” of our hearts to deepen our relationship with God. We can do this by realizing what are the special works of love that God calls us to do in his name. As we focus on prayer, we converse with God as intimately as possible so that we can become more united with him. As we focus on fasting, what are the things that we can “give up” in order to do more for God in our lives. For example, let’s “fast” from computers and video games to interact more personally with family and friends. As we focus on almsgiving, we can think about giving more of ourselves to those in need around us. The season of lent is truly a celebration and an opportunity for us to grow more as God’s “custom design.” Have a great celebration of your First Week of Lent!!!!!........Fr. Tom
