Sundays keep us in the light of Christ, which after recent snowfall in the Northeast is welcomed with opened arms! The mystery of God is made visible as the faithful are
drawn from many points to 'gather' as the Catholic community. Emerging from the snow packed neighborhoods the faithful are drawn into this motion...it is worth contemplating. As Pope John Paul II wrote in 2003: "The Eucharist is truly a glimpse
of heaven appearing on earth." (Ecclesia de Eucharistia-On The Eucharist in Its Relationship To The Church, p. 26.). So a little heaven on Sunday...transforming every day forward! Being in the company of the faithful is gift that we in turn carry
to all we meet even in our passing by to attend the liturgy.
During the past week some were beginning to pray over possible Lenten offerings, sacrifices offered to our beloved Lord. The prompting of the Holy Spirit moves us! May
this year find us ever preparing to proclaim the transformation of conversion in accord with the will of God. Let our 'yes' be a yes, forever!
