  • March 26, 2023 from Fr. Steve

       What has been revealed about our loving God in the Scriptures? With the psalmist we respond today, "With the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption". The season of Lent is a special time to reflect and take inventory of our lives, even though we are called daily to pray for the grace to fully follow the Lord. Jesus is always with us, but sometimes we need to deliberately set time aside for further growth and repentance.
          Am I failing to give God the first place in my life? Is my life centered on following Jesus Christ in all things? Do I form my opinions, thoughts and then act only in accord with who I am as part of the Body of Christ? Am I selfish or failing to love others in any way that is not in accord with God's commandments?
          This are all questions to help us grow closer to God our Father who loves us dearly and to his Son, Jesus our Savior who died for us. We are each invited to an intimate relationship with the Creator of all people and the universe. What a wonderful and compassionate God we have!
          "If you, O Lord, mark iniquities, Lord who can stand? But with you is found forgiveness, that you may be revered" (Psalm 130). If you have not been to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or Confession for a long time, this is excellent time to come back to this gift of love given by God. Even if you have no serious sin that you know of, God's grace is present to experience his forgiveness and aid you in your spiritual journey. During Holy Week there will be many extra times listed in the bulletin for Confession. Come and be refreshed, renewed, and inspired by the Holy Spirit to follow our Lord Jesus in a deeper way!

      The woman caught in adultery is one of the clearest demonstrations of what René Girard called the scapegoat mechanism.
