Lent

62f3ed5ac695988d023c49b29ea92560As we make our way through Lent, we can all tire and flag a little, the sacrifices we continue to make can leave us a little tired as we fast or rise early for extra prayer, as we look for opportunities to do good and curb ourselves to try only to speak good too. Like any time of retreat, we can lose the little bit of resolve to keep on going, but the Gospel of the second Sunday of lent – the Transfiguration reminds us all that everything we do in life we do for God and His glory, everything we say and are is a chance to use the talents He gave us all.  But in Lent, we’re encouraged to remember that without God at the centre of our 40 days they can lose their meaning and purpose.  Lent brings us closer to God as we sacrifice to thank Him for His sacrifice, as we pray to ask Him to enter more into our lives, as we stop and think and love in word and deed to make the world see a tiny glimpse of His love on the cross.  As we make our way deeper into Lent always remember that God sees the good you do and the sacrifice you make and knows that what it really says is Thank You.  Keep going, don’t tire, do all you can for your God in these weeks.  As St Catherine of Sienna wisely said, “Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring”.  Remember that this time gives value and meaning to the Easter that awaits us all.

With best wishes

About

“A lawyer, to disconcert Jesus, put a question , ‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’  Jesus said, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and the first commandment.  The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself.  On these two hang the whole Law and the Prophets also’.

Matthew 22:35-40
