Message from the Pastor

Dear Friends,

I hope your Lent is off to a good start.  The old folks used to talk of “les vents de carême” (the winds of Lent), when describing the “kite-flying” kind of breezes that kick up in February and March.  And we can all go for a little fresh air now and then.  In these penitential days of Lent, let the Holy Spirit blow where He will in your life.  Take these days seriously, for a personal renewal in Christ…and joyfully, but don’t go crazy.  I heard the other day of somebody who shelled out eighty bucks (!) for boiled crawfish this past Friday.  Let me suggest instead:  dole out $9 at Saint Francis down the street for the best fried catfish around, and give the rest to charity, for goodness sake.  On Ash Wednesday, Our Lord told us not to scrap doing the good works of prayer, fasting and almsgiving but to do them with the right attitude, motive and intention.  That’s something we always have to be careful about.  Counselors say that people addicted to one destructive behavior or another, if they’re not careful, will simply transfer or trade one addiction for another.  So, the “reformed” smoker might tend to overeat.  The recovering alcoholic might take up smoking like a train, and so on.  In his book Addiction and Grace, the Catholic psychologist Dr. Gerald May says that in our own battles with “the world, the flesh and the devil”, we have to not only look to “reforming our behavior” but to “transforming our desire”.  Not only must we recognize that “Higher Power” in our lives but call on Him constantly.  As the Lenten winds are blowing around the neighborhoods of your spirit and mind, let that amazing Grace of a good God re-make us all into not only what we might want to be, but into what you and I know we have to be.  In last Sunday’s Gospel, we heard that Jesus was surrounded by wild beasts but ministered to by angels.  There’s a little bit of them both in all of us—beast and angel—but in all this spiritual tug-o-war, we’re already winners, thanks to our Friend Who battled it all out before us, and came out on top!  Have a blessed week!
