|“Lord, you have the words of everlasting life.”
– John 6:68c
May Jesus’ peace be with you,
Growing up, Lent in our household was a time of “giving something up” and waiting. I waited for Holy Saturday noon when Lent’s grip of fish on Fridays, extra, boring visits to church, and “no candy” would finally start to loosen. Easter would be the next day. Finally. Thank God!
Many of you taught me that Lent can be about “feasting”, feasting on compassion, love of others, and forgiveness. You taught me that it’s ok to look deep inside my soul and ask for forgiveness from God and others. I’ve come around that Lent is a season of hope – a reverent and introspective season – to be embraced and not simply endured.
My eyes are set on Easter and the Resurrection, but I’ve unfinished internal work yet to do this Lent. Now, I look forward to it, because of you, my Cursillo brothers and sisters. Thank you.
Our March Ultreya is scheduled for tonight, March 08, with witness talks (Ed Wendler and Serena Rodriguez) and music (Rob Lim). See details below.
We continue to hold a nascent co-ed group reunion on Saturday mornings – all are invited. Details are below.
Got a prayer?
We now have a prayer wall on our website at www.sanjosecursillo.org/prayer-requests. This allows everyone, including those who don’t use Facebook, to share to the Community of those needing its prayers. Please check out the prayer wall and send along a prayer request.
And finally, we are planning an in-person Lenten Liturgy on March 20, 2PM, outside at St Christopher. Details will be forth coming.
As always, “Hold out your candle for all to see it” – Chris Rice
Keeping all of you in my prayers daily,
