Message from Father Daniel 


Dear Parishioners,
 
A mother camel and her baby are talking one day and the baby camel asks, “Mom, why do we have these huge three-toed feet?” The mother replies, “To enable us to trek across the soft sand of the desert without sinking.” “And why do we have these long, heavy eyelashes?” “To keep the sand out of our eyes on the trips through the desert” replies the mother camel. “And Mom, why do we have these big humps on our backs?” The mother, now a little impatient with the boy replies, “They are there to help us store fat for our long treks across the desert, so we can go without water for long periods.” “OK, I get it!” says the baby camel, “We have huge feet to stop us from sinking, long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes and humps to store water. Then, Mom, why are we here in the Toronto zoo in freezing Canada?”
 
Modern life sometimes makes one feel like a camel in a zoo, something is out of place in our lives.  Lent is a time when we are all called to look at our lives. It challenges us to change. This change of heart to which Lent calls us can be accomplished most of all through the power of prayer and penance.  May the Lord help us all in this time of Lent!
 
 
In Christ,

 

Fr. Daniel Leonard, Pastor
