First Week of Lent
The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,
and he remained in the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan. (Mark 1:12-13)
In this reading from Mark we find Jesus confronted with the “beginnings” of his own life. He discovers what God is calling him to do. We find ourselves confronting the same question: how to live our “imperfect” lives to the fullest, to the happiest, to the most meaningful. Lent calls us to realize that our lives begin now. These forty days are a time for deciding what we want our lives to be, what values we want to make the center of our lives, what we believe to be purposeful for us. We pray- Jesus, may your grace and wisdom minister to us in this season for new beginnings. Walk with us. Amen. (Adapted from Jay Cormier, Not By Bread Alone)

Year of Consecrated Life
Pope Francis has declared Nov. 30, 2014, through Feb. 2, 2016, the Year of Consecrated Life. The purpose of the yearlong celebration, according to a Vatican statement, is to “make a grateful remembrance of the recent past” while embracing “the future with hope.”
Pope Francis has asked the Church’s religious sisters, brothers and priests to “wake up the world” with their testimony of faith, holiness and hope. We, Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, with the Archdiocese and Church plan to devote this year to the renewal of religious life, the celebration of the witness of members of religious orders and to inviting young people to consider a religious vocation.
