Friday, March 27
Lenten weekday; day of abstinence
It’s not too late
So maybe this has been the richest, most faithful, most spiritually rewarding Lent of your life. Or maybe your early resolutions to pray more, eat less, be kind all fell apart like a house of cards the day after Ash Wednesday. Be not afraid: There’s still time to get your spiritual act together and make this a Lent to remember. Spiritual renewal is not about attaining perfection, but about putting yourself in the hands of grace. Confession is a place to begin. Ask for what you need in prayer. Trust in God, not yourself. God is a much better bet!
Today’s readings: Jeremiah 20:10-13; John 10:31-42 (255). “The Lord is with me, like a mighty champion.”
