Well, we’re over one week into Lent! Here at the CUF office the days seems to reflect the liturgical season, as rain falls steadily outside the windows and even turning on the light can’t drive away the grayness of the day. Somber and dark.
Yet, the rain brings promise of growth, and even the absence of the sun helps us appreciate just a little bit more when he does finally show his luminous face again.
So too in this time of Lent, we can be with our Lord in the silence and dark of the desert…waiting, hoping, praying, loving so that our hearts may be transformed and watered by prayer, sacrifice, and service; and we will welcome the radiance and joy of the new life that bursts forth from the tomb on Easter Sunday!
To help us all on this Lenten journey, we’ve prepared a Lenten resource page on CUF’s website. There you will find articles, Pope Francis’ Lenten message for 2014 and other resources to help you grow closer to our Lord this holy season!
