Thought of the Day February 23, 2016

"'Return to me with all your hearts.' Why must we return to the God? Because something is not right in us...and we need to change, to give it a new direction. And this is called needing to convert! Once again Lent comes to make its prophetic appeal, to remind us that it is possible to create something new within ourselves and around us, simply because God is faithful, always faithful, for he cannot deny himself, he continues to be rich in goodness and mercy, and he is always ready to forgive and start afresh. With this filial confidence, let us set out on the journey!" (Pope Francis) We hear this prophetic call on Ash Wednesday and we need to hear it many times during the 40 day pilgrimage to the cross and the resurrection. We need to ask ourselves throughout to what extent am I responding to the call to return with all of my heart to the Lord? What is that area where my heart may still be hardened?
