Dear Parishioner,

As we enter more fully into this season of Lent we are immersed into the mystery of transformation. We experience this escape from the mundane, ordinary and secular reality of our lives most fully when we gather at the table of the Lord at Mass. Lent helps us to focus inwardly, both individually and communally, through the beautiful readings and words of prayer during our Lenten season. As we look around our beautiful churches and chapels here at Notre Dame de la Mer this Lent we are immediately struck by the covering of the images and fixtures so familiar, to us, in purple cloth. Immediately, we are reminded that we are in a season of holy time different from the other seasons.

We are called to holy detachment. We are called to enter mystically into the dying and changing that Christ experienced. We symbolize this by all the letting go that mark Lent, even to gazing on the lovely images that bring us comfort in our churches, so that we can be aware of the great transformation taking place in our lives as we see more clearly that we are “hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:3) As we let go of earthly thoughts and attachments that cloud our inner vision, we unlock the “transformation of the mind” (Ephesians 4:23) that will lead us to “an altogether new creation.” (Galatians 6:15)

St. Paul in his letter to the Romans exhorts us to “yield yourselves” to God, he adds, “I appeal to you therefore to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.” Let us enter this holy season with abandonment so that we may be transformed !

Fr. Wallace
