Getting Ready for Lent Novena: Day Six

getting ready for Lent is about seeking to imitate the love of Jesus for others. He was ever so generous, emptying himself for our salvation. When he finds us, he helps us to realize that when we focus only on ourselves, there is never enough money, never enough pleasure, never enough fame.

God’s ultimate power – the power to save

I would call it a weakness in me, but every time I hear the story of the shepherd who leaves the 99 sheep to search after the lost sheep, I cannot help but think of the poor economics at work. Why leave the 99, 99 percent of your flock, for one sheep who may have already been killed by a wolf. Truth is, the gospel is not always logical. It is not logical for a God of justice to temper that with mercy. It is an act of love. And searching out the lost sheep is a completely different story when I am the one God is seeking. Use this season of advent to allow yourself to be found by God.
