Today You Must Rejoice in the Lord!

LAETARE SUNDAY is perhaps the most “Franciscan” day of the year. After all, Francis’ call was to a life of penitence, yet in the midst of that life he always stressed the importance of Joy (Laetitia). And this is a Sunday, on which we remember the resurrection even as we look at the Crucified One. So let us rejoice, do penance, and believe in the power of God! Amen.

Lent: What God Does

Peace and Good! It's mid-Lent, and I know I have left this blog bereft for a while. And that will continue, but if God wills soon I will be able to write again. But as Lent goes by, I think of what Francis said: Brothers, let us begin anew. For up to now we've done nothing. No, we never do anything. But Gods does a LOT. And Lent is a time to remember, recognize, and rejoice in that. God bless you all!
