Bishop MorneauThe Gift of Spirituality

Dear Parishioners of St. Francis Xavier Parish,

I received a note from Sandra Book telling me that my booklet, The Gift of Spirituality, will be given out for parish Lenten reading. Know that I will hold you in prayer as you all journey to the Easter mysteries. Lent is a beautiful time to deepen our spiritual life, this life of prayer, service, and self-denial: our relationship with God, our relationship with one another, our relationship with our self in seeking freedom to be open to the will of God. My favorite banner: “The main thing is to know the main thing and to keep the main thing the main thing.” And the main thing: relationships! Blessed holy and happy Lent.
