Lent and Easter at Cathedral

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Cathedral,

On Ash Wednesday the Scriptures call us to prayer, fasting and almsgiving. If you and I can answer this call, then Lent could be very fruitful for us. 

What are your thoughts as you enter into this sacred season? Do you feel the Spirit moving in a certain direction?

 There is one thing that I would like to offer to you for your prayerful consideration: would you be willing to fast from your electronic devices (TV, radio, IPhone, etc.) for one hour a day? Would you be willing to turn these devises off for an hour so that you could read, be silent, or simply enter into conversation with your family?

 I think this would have a tremendous impact upon all of us. I especially encourage some daily reading of Scripture and some silent time afterwards to let the words sink in. How else are we going to hear the Word of God unless we give Him our undivided attention. 

So here we go, Lent is upon us.  The Lord is calling us, what will be our answer?

    Blessings to you, Fr. Michael Grewe, Saint Cecilia Cathedral Pastor
