It can be hard as a child to understand the ascetic practices of the Lenten Season, but a more mature faith incorporates its lessons as the Church's fast before the feast.
Even though their days are busy and full of various activities, when the men of Moreau Seminary gather for prayer, their hearts, and voices, are united in praise of God.
When we work, moved by the Holy Spirit, we cooperate in making Jesus present to those we serve. Jesus is present to us in many ways, in the Sacraments, in the Word, but we also desire to make him present by the way we love those placed before us. This is what is happening in East Africa.
God is not only present in the moments we set aside to invite Him in, but in all moments. How can we be more aware of that presence even in the midst of our everyday tasks?
