Dear Parishioners,

I like to think of Easter as the time of anniversary. It is the time in which we remember not only the anniversary of our Lord’s Resurrection, but also the anniversary of our own Baptism. Thus on the second Sunday of Lent, the Church invites us to join the disciples in looking beyond the cross to: the glory of Easter, the glory of the Resurrection and the glory of the baptised.

At the Easter Vigil we renew our Baptismal promises to remind us of our Baptism day. Accordingly, anytime we are preparing for an anniversary, such as a wedding anniversary or any special event in our life, it is good to remember the promises that we made on that original occasion. For example, when a married couple renew their promises they are remembering the original promises and vows that they made. Lent is like preparing for an anniversary of our Baptism. So our prayer during Lent should focus around these questions: in what way have I lived up to my Baptismal promises? In what way have I failed in my Baptismal promises? In what way have I not walked with the Lord? Prayer is a vital practice to help us focus on our Baptismal promises and also to reflect on these questions.

A common practice of prayer during Lent is the Stations of the Cross, which we have at St Mary’s every Friday at 7pm. This is an appropriate meditation during Lent because we are reflecting on the love of Jesus for us in the Stations of the Cross. Please see the newsletter to read the full article.
