President's Message - March 2019

March 6, 2019

 

With the beginning of Lent on March 6th, Ash Wednesday, I asked our State Chaplain,

Father William Smith, to write a few words this month.  This is Fr. Bill’s Lenten message:

 

                                                                      LENT 2019

 

Today, we begin the Season of Lent.  Lent is a time of preparation to celebrate the most important three days of our faith:  The Easter Triduum.

 

During The Easter Triduum we celebrate the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  During Lent we are encouraged to a more intense activity of daily prayer, giving to others, and fasting.

 

During the officer’s workshop in September 2018, State Vice-President, Elena offered us a reflection on “How to Plant Your Garden”.  Using that format, I want to offer a reflection on fasting, one of the pillars of the Season of Lent.

 

                A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO FASTING.

Fasting has a tendency to be oriented toward things like  

            giving up food, social media or candy.  Here is an

            another creative way to approach fasting.

 

Fast   from anger and hatred.  Give your family an

           extra dose of love each day.

 

Fast   from judging others.  Before making any

          judgements, recall how Jesus overlooks our

          faults.       

              

Fast   from discouragement.  Hold on to Jesus’ promise

           that He has a perfect plan for your life.

 

Fast   from complaining.  When you find yourself about 

           to complain, close your eyes and recall some of

           the little moments of joy Jesus has given.

 

Fast    from resentment or bitterness.  Work on

            forgiving those who may have hurt you.

 

Fast   from spending too much money.  Try to reduce

           your spending by ten percent and give those

           savings to the poor.
