Today is the day we solemnly remember our Lord's Passion. Jesus being tortured, put to death on our behalf, and that is good?
Lent is not a time when we regretfully step back from all the fun and joy we have in life to enthusiastically pretend we are good Christians by starting a diet. Lent is a time when we remember that God invites us to true joy. God is love. All our preoccupations with anything less than what God intends for us is illusion.
--Sister Kathryn James, FSP
God is love, and He has invited us to true joy. . .now that is good.
I know many of you have wonderful plans for Easter. I pray they are blessed, and this very special time in our church year is meaningful and filled with love.
In closing I'd like to invite those of you who will be spending Easter with children to give this Easter Story Cookie recipe a try. Our Faith Formation Director sent a very similar version home with us, and we are excited to give it a whirl this year. I think it will be perfect for Bubby.
Take care my friends. I'll see you after Easter. I've got some Hot Cross Buns to finish up.
