One of the best parts of being a Catholic Christian is that God welcomes us at whatever moment we say ‘yes’. We are assured of this welcome from the promise of the parable of the workers in the vineyard (Matt 20) and Jesus’ own words earlier in Matt 11:28ff:
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
Take note – there is no timeframe given, no due date just a “come to me”, and we all qualify for this invitation as all of us are under one burden or another.
So, if you haven’t really jumped into Lent for yourself or your kids might I recommend:
**We are praying for all of you but are offering extra prayers and sacrifices for all the LF/BK families struggling in Texas. May Christ give you strength.**
