Jesus took the path of Lent together with His disciples during His life on earth. He continues to follow it together with His Church. Lent is a period of the intense presence of Christ in the Church. We ought to get closer to Christ during this season. (St. John Paul II) A Gallup Poll released on March 13 said that a third of U.S. Catholics—37 percent—surveyed in January and February said they have questioned whether they should remain in the Church. Where do we stand on this? Have you considered leaving the Church? And if so, would you ever leave Christ? As we move toward the climax of Lent I invite you to delve more deeply into the Cross and Jesus’ acceptance of it for your sins and failings. Perhaps, we all need to enter more fully into the meaning of Lent, the Cross and the Resurrection, so we can make a faith-filled renewal of our Baptismal Promises on Easter (just less than a month away). Are you in this journey with me?
