This Week’s Sunday Gospel Reflection

Readings available at www.usccb.org/readings

Sunday, February 7 – 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Contemplation from Lectio Divina

 What conversion of mind, heart, and life is the Lord asking of me?

He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.

How can I help to lift others up? Who in my life is in need of support?

He left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.

What things distract me from prayer? How can I quiet or remove those distractions?

For this purpose have I come.

To what purpose is God calling me? How can I discern my life’s purpose?

Live Lent!

Make This Lent About What You Do, Not What You Don’t Do!

Have you ever wished you had more time to think about the more important things in life? Why not make that time during this Lent? Why not join one of the small groups of 8 to 10 people in our parish who will meet once a week for six weeks starting the week of Ash Wednesday?

When we gather, we will read Scripture, pray, and share our faith. This experience will provide more than you can imagine; it could make this the most memorable Lent in your life.

Sign up by Friday, February 12 for a small group – there are multiple days and times to choose from. Sign up here: https://sjehydes.flocknote.com/signup/37196
