What is a Lenten Mission?
A Lenten Mission consists of 2 evenings when we can come together to hear a message of what and why we are sacrificing the things our world says we should “love”.
Here are 3 takeaways I’ve received after attending Lenten Missions in the past.
- A sense of having a “conversation” with God. I found myself listening for His voice more than finding myself asking for this and that. He speaks quietly, in a whisper.
- A distinct feeling of calm. A peaceful feeling. The first night I was tense, distracted, and often thinking of the many other things I could be doing; but after the first evening, I found myself looking forward to coming back for more the following night.
- A feeling of being closer to Heaven. It’s difficult to explain, but this feeling is one that put me in a place of actually sitting with Jesus–having Him teach me, guide me, and encourage me to go out and be fearless. He strengthens me.
Yes, we are in the middle of the Lenten season and we begin to find ourselves slipping back to focusing only on us…on our work…on our “stuff”!
I’m with you!
I know how easy it is to forget to follow the promises we made on Ash Wednesday.
A Lenten Mission is powerful. It can take us to a place where we can be one with God.
Holy Family Catholic Church is holding a Lenten Mission next week. It is the perfect time for us to release ourselves from our busy schedules.
Take the time to seek the voice of God.
Take that moment of chaos and change it to a moment of calm, quiet, and peace.
