Bishop Finn on Lent


My bishop on Lent in his media column this week. Speaking of various practices of penance and discipline, they “will hardly hurt us and may help us gain a new perspective – ultimately a closer, more loving attention to those around us.”

I’ve called in to the diocese today to add to Rock’s indult scorecard from northwestern Missouri. Seems like the liturgy people are all getting ready for the Rite of Election tomorrow night and have better things to do than sit at their desks and field corned beef/pork questions from the faithful. In your Lenten observance, please remember to pray for the elect and candidates.

Update: The Worship Office informs me that Bishop Finn has issued a “dispensation” from the Friday abstinence on the 17th of March.
