We are fast approaching Easter; next weekend is Palm Sunday. Amazing how fast time is just flying.
I want to take the time to thank anyone who helped with the gala/auction for the school. This type of event is a monumental task and so any of you helped either physically or in terms of a donation in some way, I thank you. The students will benefit so much in the future!
As you go into this week, approaching Palm Sunday, along with the challenge I give you below, knowing that the reading of the gospel for next weekend is the Passion of Christ. So take some time and reflect on our own hands that were a part of this event that open the doors of heaven for all of us!
Your challenge this week:
This weekend we have the raising of Lazarus from the tomb. In our lives we have our own tomb and can be filled with many things, those things we do not take to prayer. In our lives we need to confront those things buried in the tomb head on and reconcile them with God. So this week, I ask you to:
- Identify the things that you have buried and bring them to Christ.
- Take those things to the Lord and the best way to do that is through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Peace and God Bless,
Fr. Ron Richards
