Each year my parish distributes a Lenten reminder to help us keep this holy season in mind and heart throughout its forty days. For several years now, we've given little wooden pocket crosses.
This year's pocket cross picks up the theme of Pope Francis' Year of Mercy and its scripture verse is taken from Colossians 3:12-14.
Because you are God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved,If you would like one of these crosses for your own prayer and use, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to me at:
clothe yourselves with heartfelt mercy,
with kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
Bear with one another;
forgive whatever grievances you have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord has forgiven you.
And over all these put on love,
that is, the bond of perfection.
Fr. Austin FlemingPlease do not send any money. If you wish to make an offering, please give it to your own favorite charity or to mine: the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (see the sidebar on this page).
