Lent at the midpoint: Stay in your lane

Lent at the midpoint: Stay in your lane

A message from Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M.

Here we are at the midpoint of our Lenten journey with the finish line now in sight.  How has it been going?

Living our Catholic faith takes practice all the time, even more so with the challenges imposed upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic.  But when we trip or fall, the true believer picks himself/herself up, dusts himself/herself off and carries on where he/she left off. 

So it is with the holy season of Lent, that annual time of penance and grace the Church gives us.  There are crosses and resurrections throughout these 40 days heading toward the commemoration of Christ’s own Cross and Resurrection.  Perhaps we started off on Ash Wednesday with the very best of Lenten intentions and plans.  And we may have stumbled on the way.  But we shouldn’t give up on what we hoped and wanted to do for the Lord.
