I didn’t post my homily for today, because I did the School Children’s Mass and preached extemporaneously. So, instead I’m posting this picture from flickr, which I really like. What grabs my attention in it is how we see the activity through the cross. We’re called to be a people who see everything in the shadow of the Cross and the light of the Resurrection. It’s a wonderful way to let a picture speak a thousand words as we begin our Lenten journey.

Is Lent too early this year? Maybe for many of us, it’s at just the right time.
