March Reflection - Lent Begins March 6

Posted 2/27/2019

Lent is a journey to the heart - 

Lent is a journey to the heart -
… a time to pray, give alms and fast
… a time to change
… a time for conversion
… a time for reconciliation
… a time to reflect on death and resurrection moments in our daily lives
… a time to walk the road to Calvary
… a time to ponder the mystery of God’s deep love for us
… a time to make space for God in our hearts
… a time to go out into the desert
… a time for rebirth
… a time for repentance
… a time to return to God with our whole hearts
… a time to be an ambassador for Christ
… a time to walk the journey to the empty tomb
… a time to turn darkness into light
… a time to empty, a time to fill
… a time to die to self and rise to new life
… a time for letting go and embracing the unknown
… a time for healing

What “time” is it for you? The second reading for Ash Wednesday says “Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

The season of Lent is a very holy season that invites us to go deep into the caverns of our hearts and create the sacred space for God to enter. May each of us be given the grace to listen to God’s voice and turn from the ashes of Ash Wednesday to the hope of the Resurrection on Easter morning.
