Faith and Mission
This week, we commenced our Lenten journey on Ash Wednesday, a time when we are marked with the symbol of the cross in ashes on our foreheads and are invited to “repent and be faithful to the Gospel”.
Lent is also a time to remember that we are ambassadors of Christ. It is a time when all Christians pause and reflect completely on how Christ became our Paschal Sacrifice and how we can figuratively speaking ‘climb into His wounded side’ to find healing, forgiveness and new life.
This year, may we all enter into Lent with our hearts open, embracing more fully the power of the Resurrection, so that we find new hope and encouragement to open our hearts as we respond to God’s grace and to lead others to do the same.
