As we begin this holy season of Lent we take time out of our busy days to reflect on the message of the Gospel. During these forty days we have the opportunity to turn back to our Loving Father so that we can truly experience the coming Easter joy.
St. Paul reminds us in his second letter to the Corinthians that “We are ambassadors for Christ,
as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
The message of St. Paul is the same message that St. Gaspar del Bufalo preached: Be reconciled to God. Christ, who shed his Precious Blood for us, has empowered us to be his ambassadors, preaching the Gospel to all the earth.
On behalf of all the Missionaries of the Precious Blood around the world, I pray that this season of Lent may be a time for spiritual growth leading you back to God, our Loving Father.
