2024, Feb 29: Leap Day!

Dear Parish Family,

Today is February 29 and we are given he gift of an extra day this year!

While totally unrelated to the astronomical event, I thought it might be fun to look at the number of times the word “LEAP” is mentioned in the Bible.

Here are just a few……

  • 2 Samuel 6:16: “David leaped and danced”
  • Psalm 28:7: “My heart leaps for joy and with my song I praise him.”
  • Luke 1:41: “When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.”

May you receive today as a special gift — another day to praise God!

Fr. Michael Durning
