NOT A GOOD WEEK – for hanging out the washing – though Tuesday had its moments – one parishioner cautions against putting out bedding plants until late in May. But, who knows, April could be a scorcher – but, we have delayed ordering palm trees for the front of the church.
HUGH LAVERY – ‘The word ‘Lent’ has a bleak inflection and the season comes before the swallow dares. We do not live by the head but by the heart, and it is to the heart that Jesus speaks. Lent is for a change of heart, a revision of values. Jesus does not underrate the need for bread. He merely insists that it is not enough A nation needs its Lent for learning and a lean time can be a season for health.’
GERARD HUGHES -‘Deliver us, Lord, from every form of self-righteousness, from every trace of satisfaction in our condemnation of another. Show us our own sinfulness so that knowing the depths of your forgiveness and the tenderness of your love, we may bear witness to your loving mercy in all our dealings.’
