Dear Friends of Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
The month of February this year includes Mardi Gras celebrations for almost half the time before we enter into our time of Lenten renewal. Happy Mardi Gras! May you and your family be safe as you enjoy Carnival season.
When you are ready to begin thinking of Lenten practices, one suggestion you might like is to practice kindness wherever you are. This includes with family members, of course, but extends beyond to our neighbors and friends, and especially to those we don’t know well. A little patience with a slow driver, for example, or a gentle reminder when someone needs this – the possibilities are infinite. Then at the end of the day, to recall the invitations to be kind that we did hear and respond to, to celebrate these and pray to grow more like our God, whose kindness is all around us. How different our world would be if everyone tried to be more kind.
Our Lady of Prompt Succor, teach us all to grow in kindness!
Sr. Carolyn M. Brockland, OSU
