This week we will begin our Lenten journey. We begin on Ash Wednesday hearing the words “Repent and be faithful to the Gospel” as we are being marked with a “sign of the cross” with ashes on our forehead; Powerful words to signify the importance of this Season, the importance of this journey. As we think about Jesus and His journey through the desert, I am sure that it was not all fun and games for him. It is important to know that our journey, our turning away from sin and being faithful to the Gospel will not be all fun and games either. At times it is going to be tough for us, but we also need to know that if we keep our eyes focused on Jesus then we like Him will come to know the joy of being set free in heaven.
God's continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
