ST. LEO THE GREAT CHURCH
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA

Dear Friends,
We have completed our observance of Lent and
Holy Week a few weeks ago. We began that journey of
prayer, penance, and almsgiving by acknowledging our
guilt and humbly accepng ashes as a sign of our
repentance. We concluded that journey standing in awe of
the empty tomb which could not contain the Risen Christ.
And now we are on the road again. The 50 days of the
Easter season prepare us to celebrate the great gi0 of the
Holy Spirit first received by the Apostles and our Blessed
Mother at Pentecost. The season of Easter is given to us
not only to bask in the glory of Christ now risen and
triumphant over sin and death, but to pray with fervor that
the gi0s of the Holy Spirit come alive within our lives.
So abundant is the life giving power of the Spirit
that we speak of seven gi0s: wisdom, understanding,
counsel, fortude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord.
The Catechism states that “the moral life of Chrisans is
sustained by the gi0s of the Holy Spirit. These are
permanent disposions which make man docile in
following the prompngs of the Holy Spirit….They make
the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspiraons.”
Less known perhaps are the “twelve fruits” of the Holy
Spirit. These are the “perfecons that the Holy Spirit forms
in us as the first fruits of eternal glory”. The tradion of the
Church lists them as being charity, joy, peace, paence,
kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness,
modesty, self-control, and chasty.
Christ has conquered human weakness, sin, and
death. In doing so, He has not removed painful realies
from human experience but He has robbed them of their
power and has transformed them into pathways to glory.
As we now journey yet again through this Easter season,
may we never forget that we do so accompanied by the
Risen Lord and forfied by the Holy Spirit. We are now able
to move forward through even the darkest of situaons
and gravest of pains with confidence and hope. Alone we
cannot help but fail, but with God all things are possible.
On behalf of all the priests and deacons of St. Leo
parish, I wish you a blessed and happy Easter!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I recently received word that St. Leo School Fourth
Grade Girls’ Basketball Team was the recipient of the CYO
April 10, 2016
Sportsmanship Award. This disncon is voted on by the
coaches in the respecve leagues and is awarded to the
team that best exemplifies the qualies of sportsmanship
and Chrisan values. Not only did the girls maintain a
posive a!tude in victory and defeat, they always
supported and cheered for their opponents. They played
fairly, within the rules of the game, and were always
respec#ul. Congratulaons and a special thanks to the
coaches and all of our volunteers.
In Christ,
Rev. David A. Whitestone
Thank you to all who helped prepare the Church for
Easter with flower and altar set up. Happy Easter!
