“Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.” ~Psalm 34
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
This weekend’s Psalm 34 is filled with an awareness of God’s salvation. The psalmist knew illness and recovery, confession and forgiveness and estrangement and reconciliation with God. This powerful experience teaches us that steadfast love surrounds those who trust in God. Knowing God’s love and forgiveness is a cause for great celebration. Today the Church uses this psalm to remind us of God’s care for us as we continue on our Lenten journey.
May God bless you!
