From our late and beloved Fr. Robert, some words for Ash Wednesday that he wrote in 2014:
The season of Lent can provide the opportunity to practice being present. As Christians our every living moment is the living out of the ongoing experience of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ: life is made new, death is destroyed, the Kingdom is here and yet still coming. Lent helps us to be present to this saving mystery. The various practices of Lent are all geared in some way or another to help us focus on this.
How will you focus this Lent?
