Shrove Tuesday

February 28, 2017

JMJ

Blessed Shrove Tuesday!

Lengthening days
and tantalizing tastes of warmth
turn the heart to SPRING!snpwdrops

The soul has a springtime of her own,
casting off the drowsiness of winter,
scrubbing away hitherto unnoticed grubbiness,
awakening to a new vitality!

The very word “Lent”
means “spring”.

As we embark
upon these grace-filled weeks,
I invite you to explore some Lenten customs for the home
and Pope Francis’ Lenten message for this year.
See if any of these might help you deepen your own experience
of this blessed opportunity
to die to self
and come alive
in Christ.
