Lent 2015

May this Lent be a "time of grace" (2 Cor 6:2) as highlighted by Pope Francis in His Message for Lent  2015 - well worth a read on
Today, Tuesday, I arrived from Paris to Glasgow about 1 p.m. to meet representatives of the Archdiocese of Glasgow at 3 p.m. along with the Provincial Superior as our Passionist Community there plan the future and make some important adjustments to their present situation. This will, please God, continue into the future the Passionist presence in Scotland and contribute to the mission of the Passionists for the people of Glasgow and all who seek the Lord in the heart of the city.
Because of this meeting and time spent with the Passionist Community, it was not possible to get back to St Joseph''s, Paris tonight. Being the eve of Ash Wednesday, I decided to get back from Glasgow to Heathrow Airport (arrived at 10.00 p.m.) and will get the 7.20 a.m. flight from London to Paris on Ash Wednesday morning. So, tonight I am preparing for Lent by my night vigil in the 'wilderness' of Heathrow by reading, writing and offering a few prayers in Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport. It's an interesting experience and so far, rich in graces. Have a good Lent! A T
