Dear Brothers and Sisters,


Lent is about many things: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Sometimes, a lot of weight is put on to the fasting portion of the Lenten observance. But even more should be our worship. The Stations of the Cross, and Sunday and Daily Mass should be our focus. But even more, Lent is not really observed unless we truly enter into the Holy Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil.


These liturgies allow us to truly feel the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord. Personally. So much of our Faith is "head knowledge." The Catechism and so many recent Catholic Youtube videos help us to understand our Faith. But we must also FEEL the impact of the Love of God. The Holy Triduum, and the liturgies of those days, allow us to do just that. I promise you, you will personally feel the power of the Eucharist at the Last Supper of Holy Thursday, and the abandonment in the Garden with the procession of the Eucharist. You will feel the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday. You will feel the joy of the Light of Christ during the Vigil.


If you've never attended these liturgies, I urge you to do so! We all benefit greatly from entering into these days with Our Savior, so that we too may feel the power of His Love and his Death and Resurrection, which gives us His Life!

God bless you,
Fr. Sahd
