Lent – Wednesday week 2

Do you feel any different? I don’t mean because this day only comes around every four years.

If you run through life without reflection, and wait until this time, then I hope you do feel a difference. A calmness. A determination. Each day is meant to be lived, not skipped. But there are different ways to ‘live’ a day. One can rush through it, trying to get as much done as possible. One can ignore it, planning for a future day. One can dread it, hoping it will pass better than the day before.

I can’t judge how anyone lives their days, because I have not travelled their exact path. I can lift up their spirits to the Creator, hoping to strengthen them for the next step they will take.

What if you do reflect every day? It could be through meditation, prayer, or any number of ways. If you offer all your actions to God, each action becomes a reflection. How to make this deeper during Lent? I’d suggest adding something new to your routine. Or breaking it by changing it. Variety is a wonderful thing. I remember a friend sharing a book with me. It had given her great insight. And I asked her why, when it said nothing that she hadn’t already read somewhere else.

It was the way it was said. It spoke to her on a deeper level.

Until tomorrow, rest in God, for God is.

  1. Thanks, Phil, for your contribution, but I think you have merisad the post. Most of us, not just Roman Catholics, are reading the Passion on Lent 6 = Passion/Palm Sunday and this year from Luke. Prior to Vatican II it was Lent 5, as the post explains, that was called Passion Sunday the question was: why?
