Thought of the Day February 8, 2016

By 10:39 AM

"As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus' thirst...'Repent and believe' Jesus tells us. What are we to repent?  Our indifference, our hardness of heart.  What are we to believe?  Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor -- He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you."  (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta ) How can we grow in greater love this Lent? What will be the grace moments given to us by God to strip away all that is non-loving in our thoughts, words and deeds so that in turn we may truly love?  What are the areas of indifference that we are neglecting to deal with? Where is our heart hardened to the grace of God that God asks permission to crush with his mercy?  Lent is a pilgrimage to the cross and to the tomb. At the cross we die to sin; at the tomb we rise to the new Easter life of Jesus Christ. Have a blessed Lent!
