A Message from Father Gregory at the Beginning of Lent
As we enter into the holy season of Lent, let us be mindful, in the Year of Mercy, of the great gift God has given us in the Mercy he bestows on us through His Son. I am reminded of the great parable of the Prodigal Son (which we will hear this year on the fourth Sunday of Lent). The father stands, every day, watching and waiting for the son to return, and as soon as he sees him in the distance, he runs to greet him. So, too, the Father waits for us each and every day, and as soon as we turn to Him, He rushes to greet us with open arms.
Let us make this Lent a beautiful and holy time, when we turn to our loving Father, and experience the depth of His mercy.
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
