(Our Lady of Lourdes)
Moses said, “I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him.” Dt_30:15-20
Ever notice, beloved, how incredibly beautiful people are, who truly believe in God, and as Moses said, choose LIFE. There’s just something about them. And it’s not their physical looks, though it does have an impact on that too. It’s a sense of peace with everyone and everything they come in contact with. It’s a lack of worry, and anger, and competition, and hatred.
It’s Lent, beloved. This Lent, let’s work on becoming one of those beautiful people. We might be almost there, and we might need a little work to get there. One by one, let’s get rid of those things or attitudes within ourselves that are keeping us back. God is here to help us, if we just ask. Peace is just a mindset away.
Jesus said, “whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” Lk_9:22-25
Jesus, please send your Holy Spirit to help us get there.
We trust in YOU!
