St. Patrick’s Lenten Path Go: Works of Mercy
 
Where do you meet Jesus? The beginning of our Ash Wednesday liturgy explains that part of observing a holy Lent is to remember Jesus’ gospel of “pardon and absolution.” Yet Lent is not about confession and repentance as punishment but as a profound, grace-filled unburdening so that we might encounter the living Christ in all. When we go out, when we choose a commitment to sacred works of mercy, we set aside our notions of “otherness” and choose Christ, meeting him right where he tells us he will be—in the hungry and thirsty, the stranger and the naked, the sick and the prisoner. More information will be announced on Saturday, February 23rd.
