Preparation for Easter!

desert riverThus says the LORD, who opens a way in the sea

and a path in the mighty waters …

See, I am doing some­thing new! Now it springs forth

do you not per­ceive it? In the desert, I make a way,

in the waste­land, rivers …’ ’” ~Isa­iah 43:16,18–19

This upcom­ing week is the last week of Lent before Holy Week and the cel­e­bra­tion of Easter! We must use the remain­ing time well to pre­pare our­selves for Easter! Dur­ing the Sea­son of Lent, we have a chance to be renewed and to draw closer to God through the Sacra­ments (i.e. Con­fes­sion, Holy Com­mu­nion) and through our Lenten fast­ing, penances, and sac­ri­fices. God uses all of these as a means to make a way in the desert and rivers in the waste­land of our souls!

So many spe­cial things have hap­pened already dur­ing this par­tic­u­lar sea­son of Lent. For exam­ple, as of last Wednes­day, we have a new pope, Pope Fran­cis. Also, today is the cel­e­bra­tion of St. Patrick, the great Saint who brought Chris­tian­ity to the peo­ple of Ireland.

May God, who makes a way in the desert and rivers in the waste­land, help us to pre­pare our­selves to cel­e­brate Easter!
