Lenten Reflections 2010 - Please Pray With Us
In 2007 we began a tradition at St. Edwards when Father Pat suggested that we ask members of our community to offer reflections based on daily scripture for the Advent/Christmas season and again during Lent and Easter. Well, Lent is upon us and we are beginning again!
We were graced to have many parishioners step forth and offer their insights for this project, which was featured on our parish website. You can have a look at the archives here on the parish website. Click the bulletin tab on the left, you will find the Reflections are archived there.
Many people think that they cannot write, but this is not about literary talent, but about sharing our faith with one another, so please give your prayerful thought to participating.
This year we are shifting publication from our parish website to the blog and we hope you will join us in prayer and by sending in your own reflection.
To participate all you need to do is look at the readings for any day between during Lent and then the Easter season, which ends at Pentecost. You can access at the US Catholic Bishops website or by using your own missal or other approved source.
Once you choose a day, please send your choice to me at via email. I will let you know if that date is available and ask you to send me the reflection within 24 hours of its publication date. If you have links or visuals that you would like included, that can be done easily; if not I will add artwork of my own choosing to each post.
Note: if the date you select already taken, I will let you know asap via email. If you want to do more than one day that is fine.
Please consider writing a few words and sharing them with us. Not a part of our parish? No problem - all appropriate content will be posted if you wish to pray and walk with us online this Lent.
Thank you and God Bless!
