Lenten Thought

1st Reading: Dan 13:1-9,15-17,19-30,33-62
Gospel: Jn 8:1-11

By: Christian DeCarlo

From todays’ readings, we can come to the conclusion that our God is a loving God. Holy Scripture shows us God’s compassionate and forgiving spirit. We must remember that if we have fallen in our penance during this lenten season, we shouldn’t be discouraged. Go to reconciliation, be forgiven, and begin anew.  It might be getting really tough to not eat those foods that we gave up, or maybe our withdrawal from certain technologies has us shaking in our shoes, but we must remember that when things get tough, we must turn to God for help. We are powerless to succeed in this life on our own. Lest we become like the elders in the readings, we must humble ourselves so we can enter into the peace of our Lord Jesus and grow in holiness with him. In our lives, what can we do to help prepare ourselves for the resurrection that comes on Easter Sunday? Maybe say an extra rosary, spend a few extra minutes in prayer during the day? We must get ready for the coming of Christ!
