Ash Wednesday
Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have
made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and
make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily
lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness,  may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission  and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever
and ever.  Amen.

Message from the Bishop for Lent

Miracle of the Crucifix (ca.1298)
Fresco by Giotto di Bondone (d.1337)
Located in the Upper Church, San Franceso, Assisi, Italy

Na ke aloha o ke Akua ma loko o Iesu Kristo, e aloha iā ʻoukou ā pau!

As I prepare for Lent, a time for self-reflection and amendment of life, the story of St. Francis of Assisi (b. ca. 1182-d. 1226) praying before the crucifix in the ruins of the Church of San Damiano is again brought to mind. It is a much-told story. The young Francis suffering from what we might diagnose today as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (having been a prisoner of war and then faced with the possibility of war again) withdraws from the world. Praying in the neglected chapel, he hears the voice of God: "Francis, Francis, go and repair My house which, as you can see, is falling into ruins." He took this to mean the repair of the ruined church in which he was praying, and so he sold some cloth from his father's store for this purpose. Francis had a crisis of identity and of faith.

One of the earliest recorded saying of St. Francis is his prayer before the crucifix. He prayed this prayer in 1205/6, in the early days of his conversion:

Most High, glorious God,
enlighten the darkness of my heart
and give me
true faith,
certain hope,
and perfect charity,
sense and knowledge,
Lord, that I may carry out
Your holy and true command

It is a simple direct prayer. It is a cry for faith, hope, love, common sense and true understanding in order to know and do God's will. What more can we ask?

I hope you can take the time this Lent to be still and listen to God. Perhaps following the example of Francis with a crucifix before you, you can speak directly to God surrendering that which broken in your life and asking God's guidance.

In the hymn "Abide with me: fast falls the eventide" (Hymn 662 in The Hymnal 1982), the final verse reflects our hope:

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; 
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies. Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Lent calls us to union with God by trying to set aside that which separates us from God. This time holds that promise that we can be still and listen.

I pray that you have a holy and life-giving Lent.

Aloha ma o Iesu Kristo, ko makou Haku,

More 2018 Lenten Resources

The Season of Lent begins tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018, and in addition to the previously shared Lenten resources, here are a few more great options for observing Lent that you can follow along online on your own time.  (Click on the hyper-linked titles to be taken to their websites.)
  • The Good Book Club: A set of daily readings created by Forward Movement, dividing Luke and Acts into 50 days each. Each day, participants will read a few verses of Luke through the end of March and then Acts beginning on Easter Sunday through May 20.  Although this started on February 11, you can easily catch up. 

  • Set Free by Truth: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and leaders of the Anglican Church of Canada, the Evangelical Lutheran Chuch in Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have joined together to offer a weekly series of Lenten devotions beginning on Ash Wednesday. It includes scripture citations, a reflection and a prayer.  
  • Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John: A six-week study of the gospel of John by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist. Although it started on February 11, you may still view the video mediations and download the journal.
Previously shared resources:
  • UTO Lenten Devotional Calendar:  This downloadable calendar contains links to just some of the many sites that received United Thank Offering grants.  The calendar invites you to learn more about each site and consider the items featured for each day*, and to make a thank offering in your "blue box."  (*Sundays are left for considering your blessings.)  

  • Episcopal Relief & Development: This year, ERD focuses on children. Order their 2018 Lent meditation booklets in packets of 25 or download the pdf file. They also have prayer bookmarks, Hope Chest boxes, pew envelopes and downloadable bulletins. To order, call the Episcopal Marketplace at (866) 937-2772 or order online HERE.
Lent Madness Begins!

It's that time of year again, and the battle for the Golden Halo begins this Thursday, February 15, 2018, with the first match up: Peter vs. Paul!  Be sure to visit the Lent Madness website to vote, and more importantly, get to know the Saints a little better with write-ups by "celebrity bloggers."

Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of the Rev.  Tim Schenck . In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church's Calendar of Saints, Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion. Combining his love of sports with his passion for the lives of the saints, Lent Madness was born.  During Lent, 32 Saints are selected to "battle" for the Golden Halo. Each week, two Saints face off with the winner moving to the next bracket until the final match up taking place on Wednesday during Holy Week.

In 2012, our very own Queen Emma made it to the final round, shaking up the Lent Madness world. A relative unknown on the Calendar of Saints, the Queen was thrust into the spotlight. Those that had never heard of her became big fans after learning more about her through the write-ups. 
To learn more about Lent Madness and to view and download the 2018 bracket, visit the website HERE.
The following is a letter from Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick released on February 8, 2018:

Second Update on Peter Pereira & The Rev. Cn. Alexander Graham

TO: Diocese of Hawai'i

Following the surgeries on January 29, Peter (the recipient of a new kidney) and Sandy (the donor) are both doing well. 
Sandy was released from the hospital after two days and is recovering at home.  He reports being "a bit sore in some places" and that he does "get a bit tired doing simple things," but that otherwise "things are progressing well". 
Peter was remarkably discharged after four days.  He reports that "the kidney is functioning well" and that tests report daily improvements. There is some post-surgery pain and he realizes that his recovery has just begun. 
All in all, things are going well, but prayers are still much appreciated.  Notes and cards for Peter and Sandy may be sent here to the office:

What's Happening in The Episcopal Church? 

Announcements from around The Episcopal Church & beyond 

Traveling the Jesus Movement: A Witness to Hurricane Recovery

Traveling the Jesus Movement, a new periodic video series, chronicles the visits of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry throughout the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.

"The hope for this new video series is to raise awareness within the church and in the wider world of the ministries of Episcopalians everywhere, helping people understand the exciting ministry of the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement," the Rev. Canon Michael Hunn, Presiding Bishop's Canon for Ministry within the Episcopal Church, explained.  "The Jesus Movement happens in all kinds of places and all kinds of ways but wherever it happens you can be sure people are following the movement of the Holy Spirit and joining right in."

The inaugural  Traveling the Jesus Movement illustrates a witness to the hurricane recovery and chronicles the visit by Presiding Bishop Curry to the dioceses of Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.  READ MORE
This Flu Season, Congregations Urged to Take Common Sense Health Precautions
[Episcopal News Service] Has the sound of coughing and the sight of runny noses got you questioning whether to shake hands during the peace or sip from the common cup on Sunday?

With this flu season  said to be the worst since 2009, you have reason to be concerned for your health, but Episcopal leaders are advising parishioners to use common sense during worship without letting their precautions get in the way of participating fully in the life of the church.

"There are, I suppose, a million ways to get the flu, and it troubles me that we bring so much of our attention to the common cup as a particular danger," Diocese of New York Bishop Andrew Dietsche  said in a Jan. 19 letter to the diocese, adding there is little evidence that sharing wine during the Eucharist poses a great risk of spreading illness.

"I am concerned that extraordinary practices adopted during the flu season may send the message to our worshippers that the cup is a threat to us - that communion with one another is itself a threat to us - and that those perceptions may be hard to overcome later when the flu danger passes," Dietsche writes.  READ MORE

Annual Chrism Mass and Education Day for Clergy, Wardens and Treasurers
