I found myself waiting for Lent to begin on Ash Wednesday. I’ve been looking forward to this period of relationship with Jesus. I know what is coming for Him in His passion and death and I want to be there beside Him.
Following the Saturday 5 p.m. Mass, St. Paul's Chapel will be open and available for prayer until 10 p.m. There will be a special prayer environment set up in the Chapel during this time which focuses on non-violence and the Culture of Life.
My family has experienced the normal flow of wonderful celebrations, changes in direction, disappointments and joys, as I imagine most families do. During the times of stress, illness or death, I share more of myself with others and seek their prayers.
