Thought of the Day February 27, 2023 Go deeper into yourself

By 10:37 AM

 "Lent is a time of going very deeply into ourselves...What is it that stands between us and God? Between us and our brothers and sisters? Between us and life, the life of the Spirit? Whatever it is, let us relentlessly tear it our, without a moment's hesitation." Catherine Doherty

Lent is radical. It call for radical action in our lives. What stands between us and God? Is it not sin? Is this not the reason we are called to repentance? To turn away from sin and to turn back more fully to God? Sometimes we can become comfortable with sin and not recognize what it does in our relationship with God. God is never comfortable with sin in our lives, because of his great love for us. He created us to be with him forever in glory. Serious sin prevents this, other sin lessens the degree of our union with God. During this special season each year, God gives us grace to see sin for what it is and the grace to uproot sin out of love for God. That is why Lent is called a time of salvation.
