Dear Sisters and Brothers,
This pandemic has resulted in a great sense of isolation and loneliness for many. In a world which is often turned in on itself, Anxiety and Stress take hold of us. Into this world, comes Jesus with his free gift of God’s saving love. In the midst of a frenzied quest for the hoarding of vaccines, we need to pursue a slower path that looks for genuine healing for all. We must be small in our own eyes, simple and vulnerable, yet profound, in how we live. Then we will begin to understand more fully and to live the mystery of being truly human and truly alive. We are called, as Christians, to live in a totally new way. For this to happen, we must undergo a period in the desert, leaving behind what dulls our awareness. This is Lent.
Your brother, your friend, your priest
