Spring has recently arrived, according to the calendar. We all
know it takes time for spring to arrive in its fullness. Lent is
the Church's "springtime." Just as in nature, spring is a time for
"buds" to prepare anew for a new season of life and growth.
The Gospel of John tells of a man born blind, who now can see because of his encounter with Jesus, the Lord. The communion antiphon for the day is pulled from the Gospel message. It is the core message. "The Lord anointed my eyes: I went, I washed, I saw and I believed in God." (Jn. 9:11, 38)
We are touched by God and we are empowered to respond actively.
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
