While Spring is not yet in full force, some subtle but sure signs of a change of seasons are appearing now in the Chama canyon wilderness where we live.
Warmer day and night-time temperatures are now occurring, and even some crocuses are catching our attention.
We journey now through the Season of Lent, with the hope that “exile ends in glory,” as the saying goes. The daily turning to the Lord, like flowers reaching for the sun, is a theme of this time of year, as we look forward to celebrating Holy Week and the “Festival of Festivals,” Easter, which we often call “Paschaltide.” Implied in that word is “passing,” from death to life.
With assurance of our prayers for the needs and intentions of all of our families, friends, benefactors and oblates. Please keep us in your prayers. Thank you.
