We start Lent by looking in the scriptures at Jesus being tempted in the desert. What are the temptations we encounter in our lives? Perhaps we could look at the ways we are tempted by the seven deadly sins , the greatest of which is pride, the root cause of the first sin; putting ourselves on a par with God through disobedience. Whichever way through Lent we choose, we should have an end goal for all the effort. We need to end up as ready and as “clean and tidy” to receive the risen Christ at Easter. Do not let this season of personal growth in the Spirit of repentance pass you by.
We are hoping that all the building works will be finished for the Easter Festivities. Sorry for the inconvenience to date.
May God bless you, your families, and the week ahead,
Fr Aidan Peter
