Lent 2016

First Sunday of Lent

I was baptized by John in the Jordan. I was fully immersed in the life of my brothers and sisters. I came out of the river knowing that I had something to offer my brothers and sisters, I had a mission. But what was it? What did my father want me to do? I wasnít sure that I knew. I wasnít sure that I was ready.

I spent the next forty days in the wilderness, alone with my father, praying, asking for guidance, trying to find out what my mission was. I was lonely, hungry, uncomfortable, and so unsure. During those forty days the temptations of the world beckoned me Ė to be comfortable, powerful, popular, successful. But I stuck it out and I learned that I had all that I needed Ė I had my fatherís care, I had his plan for me, and I had my brothers and sisters whose life in this world I shared. The forty days were hard, but what came next was harder still. I began my mission; I began my journey.

You, too, have been immersed with me in the life of our brothers and sisters. You too have been baptized and, like me, you too have a mission to accomplish. Will you come with me into the dessert to rid yourself of all distractions? Will you come with me into the dessert to strip away the temptations of the world and try to discover what your mission is, what part you have to play in my fatherís plan? It wonít be easy and what comes next, really living that mission, that will be even harder. I know. Thatís the way it was for me.

Will you walk with me?

May this Lenten Season lead our whole parish family to the joy and hope of Easter.
Fr. Mike
