1st Monday of Lent

Please pray for Leigh Anne she is not feeling well.

Do you ever notice the providence of God in your life? Yesterday, was the Rite of Election and Continuing Conversion in the Amarillo diocese. There were a number of catechemens and candidates that came to Amarillo to be presented to the bishop. It is an exciting time and anticipates the Easter Vigil when the catechumens will be baptized and the candidates will be received in full communion with the Church.

The readings entailed the story of Noah and the rainbow which God put as a sign to mankind . I couldn’t help but remember the day that I was a candidate and presented to the bishop. I was very nervous and questioning my decision to become Catholic. One of my children pointed out a rainbow that was in the clouds above. It was a sign for me that God was there and with me.

Was it a coincidence that the readings mentioned a rainbow? Or was it the Providence of God?

May God be with you and may we see Him often.
