Lent – For You and For Me

       This Holy Season always invokes memories of my growing up. Back then, every Friday was a day of abstinence and going to confession on Saturday was a natural part of receiving Holy Communion on Sunday… after having fasted since midnight. During lent we would attend Stations of the Cross and we looked forward to the covering of all church statues in the weeks leading up to Holy Week. And then, during Holy week, nearly everyone attended all the services, especially Good Friday when it was so still you could hear a pin drop. That meant no television, no playing, and most especially no playing outside in the dirt as a reminder that Jesus had died and was buried.

       Today, dietary laws have changed, confessions have lessened, and attendance at church rituals has declined. While many things have changed in our world over the past 50 years, Christ is still our Savior. Our call to the disciplines and opportunities of Lent are just as important, and maybe even more so today. We need Lent and Lent needs you.

       This year, St. Peter’s in North Ridgeville will be hosting the Cluster Parish Mission during Lent, March 13, 14, and 15, at 7:00 p.m. with Father John Gordon speaking on Jesus: The Face of Mercy.  More details coming soon.

       Take time this year to be part of it all… after all, for some of us it might be our last chance before we stand before the judgment seat of God.

Don’t forget… Diocesan-wide Confessions will be heard in all Catholic Churches of the Diocese of Cleveland from 5:00-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 24th. God is calling… will you answer?
