A message from Fr. Len:

May the peace of Christ be with you,

“Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I missed Mass on Sunday.”
There are two ways that phrase can me taken. To miss something can mean an opportunity lost: “I just missed the bus.” Or “I was sick and missed a few days of work.” The missing may be your fault or beyond your control.

But there is a second way to understand missing Mass. To miss can mean: To long for…” We missed having you with us at Christmas dinner.” Or, ” I so miss holding you in my arms.”

I hope you “miss Mass.” During these days when we can’t be together around the Lord’s table, I pray that you are longing for the day when you can return.

Please know that we are still one in the Lord. Priests are still allowed to celebrate Mass privately. Fr. Stephen and I pray for you and with you. Make these days holy in their own special way. Through e-mail and other media, we will continue to stay in touch.

We miss you.

You are welcome to listen to the Guided Meditation for the 4th Sunday of Lent which I recorded.
