Lent – Springtime of the Spirit
Each year the trees give us a lesson in renewal.
First the bud, then the blossom, and finally the shoot.
Spring dresses the trees in a new robe,
and makes them young again.
But this is possible only because in autumn
they let go of their old leaves,
and in between endured a period of nakedness.
Lent is in the springtime of the spirit.
Lord, help us not to be afraid to let go of old habits,
and to face our spiritual poverty,
in order that you may renew us, and so at Easter
we will feel young again in our discipleship.
Flor McCarthy S.R.B.
I now invite all of you to devote your Friday penances … to this intention. I ask you to offer up your fasting, your prayer, your reading of Scripture and your works of mercy in order to obtain the grace of healing and renewal for the Church in Ireland. I encourage you to discover anew the sacrament of Reconciliation and to avail yourselves more frequently of the transforming power of its grace.
Pope Benedict XVI Pastoral Letter to the Catholics of Ireland.
· Penance is an essential part of the lives of all Christ’s faithful.
· It arises from the Lord’s call to conversion and repentance.
· We do penance –
· in memory of the passion and death of the Lord,
· as a sharing in Christ’s suffering,
· as an expression of inner conversion,
· as a form of reparation for sin.
Céad Faoistin / First Penance
Céad Faoistin / First Penance takes place, in our three parish Churches, shortly, for all children who are receiving their First Communion in May. We warmly encourage all their parents, godparents and families to accompany the children as they receive the Sacrament of God’s love for the first time.
