I would like you to imagine with me for a moment. Let’s say that you have given every ounce of yourself for someone. How do you think that you will feel if that great sacrifice was just ignored? I know the answer because I would feel the same way. Hurt with the attitude of why bother! Now I would like us to go back 2000 years and think about what Jesus has done for us. He gave His life as a sign of His love for us. Do we always show Jesus that His sacrifice is something that we appreciate? As we get ready to enter into Holy Week I challenge each one of us, regardless of where we are on our journey of faith, to take time during this Holiest week of the year to show the Lord at least in one small way that what He did for us truly makes a difference in our lives. May we help Jesus always know that His sacrifice continues to bear fruit in our lives.
God’s continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
