Find Your Way


Dear Friends of The Shrine of St. Anthony,


As we enter the season of Lent the Lord invites us to take a good look at ourselves and with His guidance strip away all that prevents us from living who we are called to be - free daughters and sons of loving God. This past month our farm land has gone through extensive repurposing. The friars are partnering with a new local farmer to farm organically and to introduce animals (cows, sheep, and goats) onto the property. In order to prepare the many acres of land we needed to clean up the area and to that end we cut down many dead trees and trimmed away many branches. Everything sure looks bare! As stark as the land looks now I know that in a few short months spring will arrive and the once barren land will be teaming with vegetation and color.

Lent is that time to ask the Lord to do some "cleaning up" of our lives. Through our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, the Lord will cut away any dead areas in our lives and prune us in order to renew our lives rooted in our Baptismal promises. We may feel barren now but we know new life will come as sure as spring when we renew our baptismal vows and feel the rejuvenating waters of Easter.

Please know the prayers of the friars as together we enter this season of Lent. The Shrine has a number of offerings planned to help you on your Lenten journey. Please know that you are always welcome at The Shrine!

We enter into this season with ashes and for 6 weeks we will journey toward Calvary, not to remain there but to rejoice in the garden of the Resurrection!
