On this day of Lent I am looking for another fresh start as I always do on Monday. Lent is a fresh start people look to when they try and give something up. For this season of Lent I am doing something different, instead of letting myself decide I am letting the Holy Spirit decide what I should give up. I encourage you to do this as well, as it is very rewarding and meaningful. I hope you all have a fulfilling Lent this and every year forwards!
Today’s gospel reading, Mt. 25:31-46, is all about the Lord: his words are Spirit and Life. There is one quote in the readings that I found very powerful. “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, and all the nations will be assembled before him.” This is saying that not only will Jesus come down from heaven and rescue us but he will also bring an army of angels. That to me means that no matter what happens Jesus will come with his army to rescue each and every one of us. He will come to rescue you and me. How powerful it is to know that the Lord will always rescue us in our darkest times? As I wrap up this reflection I leave you with this saying: Live every day as your last. And remember this verse: 2Cor 6:2b “Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”
