"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." (St. Teresa of Calcutta) Do you really believe in the core of your being that Jesus loves you as you are here and now, even with your past, even knowing your future? If you do, then you are ready to receive the other graces God has for you this Lent. But if you do not fully believe that Jesus loves you as stated, then before you can receive the more, he is calling you to begin to embrace and live in the reality of his unconditional love for you now. He thirsts to pour out his love upon you in greater measure. He awaits your thirst for him, shown through your love, imperfect as it may be. Repent to all blocks to his love. Believe more fully in his authentic love for you.
