 From Rev. Thomas Cima; Parochial Administrator

During these gloomy days of Winter, folks think about getting away. Spring weddings include lots of details to master.  Eighth graders are searching for a high school, which will have a great influence on their lives.  Some are looking forward to retirement and hope to know the state of their financial condition.  All of us can profit from a careful look at our spiritual lives.  May I suggest that we make preparations now for Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26th.  A last minute “What am I going to do this year?” sells us short.  Today’s Scriptures offer us some clues.  Isaiah speaks clearly that God desires a life of joy in place of gloom: “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwell in the land of gloom, a light has shone.”  St Paul centers us on harmony at all levels: “I urge you…that there be no divisions, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.”  So let us make plans to follow the example of Jesus and the disciples: “Jesus began to preach and say, ‘Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand’…At once they left their nets and followed him…He went around all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and curing every disease and illness among the people.”   Each person and each family may make different plans.  A group of families might embark on a project.  We will succeed because we believe in the words of psalm: “The Lord is my light and my salvation.”
