President's Message – Lent

March 2018

Our Communion is over and Easter is only a few weeks away. We are in the middle of the Holy Season of Lent. I’m sure many of you received ashes on Ash Wednesday and made promises to give something up. But, how many of us already ate meat on Friday, had a piece of cake, or a drink? Sometimes people treat Lent like a New Year’s Resolution. It sounds great when we say it, but the follow up is difficult. Perhaps this year, instead of giving something up, we should do something extra. Attending mass during the week might be a good place to start. There are so many other things that we can do, for example: volunteering our time, donating to a charity, reading the scriptures or some other type of spiritual reading. This is a special time for Catholics. In order to truly appreciate the Resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday, we truly need this time for preparation. There is still plenty of time to prepare.

Chaplain's Message – Lent

Monsignor Romano

Lent 2018

Dear Holy Name Members,

Another Lent is here and the question arises what should I give up? Cigarettes, alcohol, sweets what’s it going to be? Giving up things is a good Lenten practice but we have to ask ourselves if it’s really going to be a sacrifice. I tell everyone I give up liver for lent. The truth is I haven’t tasted liver since I was in a highchair and my mother was spooning it out of a jar and I was spitting it out.

Lent can also be a time of growth by working on things to deepen our awareness of God’s love for us. We can do this by doing things we don’t ordinarily do. Mass during the week, Stations of the Cross or volunteering in a soup kitchen these are all examples of making lent more positive rather than negative.

Whatever you decide, make your Lenten journey a good one.
