Foley Feature: Our Journey in the Lenten Season

Last week I was reading a few passages from “Walking Together in Freedom.” This is a daily reflections book that can be read throughout the Lenten season. Each bible verse and reflection is easy to read so you can understand the true meaning behind the scripture and how to include it into your daily life. Only a couple of minutes are needed to read each page per day.
 
One of the pages referenced Matthew 25:34-36, 40:
 
“Then the king will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me… And the king will say to them in reply, Amen I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
 
I was especially drawn to this verse for a few reasons. First, it is a bible verse that Father Gerry has been referencing throughout the school year. Plus, he reminded us the other week that we should really consider doing something more than just giving up chocolate for Lent. This passage was a good reminder that we are called to help others around us. Feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, and visit the sick and imprisoned.
 
This book happens to be written by one of our faculty members, Mr. McCormick and his wife. Copies can be purchased online for a very small nominal fee.
