Since we all are quarantined, I decided to provide spiritual resources for the Holy Days. I trust the enclosed suggestions and comments will unite us during this communal time of “Christian High Holy Days” at a moment in history when we cannot be physically together to celebrate them. I also hope that anyone consulting these pages and praying with us is well and will stay well during this coronavirus epidemic.

As we celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation and Mary’s YES and as we approach the High Holy Days, consider spending 10 minutes in the morning with God. Just as we choose to spend time with a new friend in order to grow the relationship, we must do the same with God. Over time, we are able to develop an intimacy akin to that of a spouse, dear sibling or best friend.
From Catholic Quotes to Help You During Your Lenten Journey:
“Lent is a time of going very deeply into ourselves… What is it that stands between us and God? Between us and our brothers and sisters? Between us and life, the life of the Spirit? Whatever it is, let us relentlessly tear it out, without a moment’s hesitation.” ~ Catherine Doherty
“God never tires of forgiving us; we are the ones who tire of seeking his mercy.” ~ Pope Francis
