FEBRUARY BENEFICE LETTER
Time for a spring clean?
But if we walk in the light, as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
February is the third and last month of meteorological winter…..possibly a bit hard to imagine as you sit there reading your parish magazine, trying to keep the house warm! It is a time of seasonal transition, as the days gradually lengthen, and we move from darkness to light, keeping our eyes peeled for signs of nature’s annual miracle of regeneration. The month derives its name from the Latin ‘februa’, a Roman festival of ritual purification or cleansing. It is a time of year when we tidy up the garden, or prune shrubs to promote fresh growth (please follow the advice of experts on which plants benefit from that!). In our homes, we may be thinking about spring-
In the Church, February 2nd is Candlemas, the day that all the Church's candles for the year used to be blessed. It marks the end of the Christmas-
What might we do for our spiritual well-
Lord Jesus Christ, light of the nations and glory of Israel: make your home among us and present us pure and holy to our heavenly Father. Amen.
