Lent is a solemn time of reflection, and our Soup Suppers offer us the opportunity to "sit and pray and eat a simple meal together." In a recent homily, Father Davis reminded us all to do this, as a family, to strengthen our bonds to each other and to God.
Father Joy Nellissery taught us the process of celebrating Jubilee:
2) Reconciliation and liberation within and with others,
3) Praying for each other,
4) Acknowledging our everyday interdependence,
5) Reaching out to the forgotten,
6) Developing a spiritual life rooted in the Word, the Sacraments and service, and
7) Rest -- allowing God to remove the internal chaos.
Let us make these seven areas of Jubilee Observance priorities in our lives, especially during this Jubilee year.
The Soup Supper videos to aid in our Lenten reflections are part of a series on the Blessed Mother called "Hail, Holy Queen." This series is based on Dr. Scott Hahn's book by the same title. This seemed appropriate because Mary, as Queen, is our Patroness and this is our 50th year.
Let us get to know our Mother more personally, show her our devotion, and let her know that we have not outgrown being her children.
