Dear Friends in Christ,

To be “islands of mercy” in a “sea of indifference.” That is what Pope Francis has challenged our church and parish to be this Lent. In his Ash Wednesday message, Pope Francis urges us not to “be tempted by indifference. Flooded with news reports and troubling images of human suffering, we often feel our complete inability to help.”

Pope Francis asks us to counter such indifference with prayer and charity and by embracing Jesus’ spirit of humility and selflessness. Our mission as a Church, Pope Francis says this Lent, “is to bear patient witness to the One who desires to draw all creation and every man and woman to the Father. Our mission is to bring to all a love that cannot remain silent . . . In each of our neighbors, then, we must see a brother or sister for whom Christ died and rose again. What we ourselves have received, we have received for them, as well. Similarly, all that our brothers and sisters possess is a gift for the Church and for all humanity.”

Make your day, week, Lent an “island of mercy” in a “sea of indifference”. In the kindness you extend, in the support you (we) are able to provide, let us respond to this call to be the means for all to know the Risen Christ in their lives this Lent.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday for the Healing Mass and on Friday for Stations of the Cross, Confessions and Soup Supper.

Happy Lent+

Fr. Tom
