LENT

Next week begins another season of Lent.  Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten Season – a time on the Church calendar observed with prayer, fasting and alms-giving.  Not that those aren’t important or practiced during the rest of the year, but Lent calls us to focus on these ever more intently, as we turn our eyes towards the cross and the Passion of Christ.

 

During Lent it is also common to ‘give something up’ to set aside something that we normally might enjoy.  The practice began back in the 3rd century when the Church was still in her infancy.  While meager and inadequate, these personal sacrifices are to remind us of Christ’s forty days of sacrifice and temptation in the desert.  Followed by a journey that would one day end at Calvary with the ultimate sacrifice – a sacrifice made, not because he had to, but because he wanted to.  A sacrifice that opens the gates of heaven and the opportunity for eternal life!

 

It’s difficult to think of eternal life without thinking of the mortality and the brevity of this life.  Ash Wednesday is a somber reminder of that reality.  It hits home as the priest rubs ashes on our forehead and says those brief, yet powerful words: Remember, you are dust and to dust you shall return.

 

We rise again from ashes, from the good we’ve failed to do

We rise again from ashes, to create ourselves anew.

If all our world is ashes, then must our lives be true –

An offering of ashes, and offering to you.”

 

We offer you our failures, we offer you attempts,

The gifts not fully given, the dreams not fully dreamt.

Give our stumbling direction, give our vision wider view,

An offering of ashes, and offering to you!”  (Tom Conry)

 

 

Have a Blessed Lent everyone.

~Fr. David Greenfield

Here’s a few of many exciting events we have coming up in our Parish.

We are starting the TMIY program on Wednesday September 18th at 5:30 a.m. We hope to see you there!  This year is similar to last year in that it is made up of 10 different speakers. The great thing about the program is that even if you stopped coming in the past, now you can jump into this new content. This new year is titled The Fight of Faith.  One of the speakers is a naval officer  who will talk about a battle and a calling that is much greater than yourself.  Please know that you are welcome to attend and find out for yourself why so many All Saints Men are willing to rise and shine early in the morning!

“Here’s what a couple men from All Saints had to say about their experience”!
