Monday of the First Week of Lent (March 6, 2017)

Reading: Leviticus 19: 1-2, 11-18 / Psalm 19: 8-10, 15 / Matthew 25: 31-46  Inclusive Text

Sisters and Brothers we see yesterday in our first Sunday of Lent how we are many times in our lives led into the desert. The temptations are all around us. It is in these times that we need to have our faith because we don’t see God. We may not hear God or feel God who I believe is always communicating with us but we are too wrapped up in ourselves to notice. It is at these times that God is most present to us in spite of not feeling God. Even though we may feel abandoned, do we believe that God is there and that God is going to get us through? I am reminded of a woman in a former community I attended whose prayer was always giving thanks for all the many wonderful blessings of those things that are seen and for those things that are not seen in spite of the obvious struggles she encountered. Still to this day I find wonder in that statement.

All the things that we go through in life, we may think we are done and have accomplished so much. We may ask ourselves, ‘why am I still here? Because love is an ongoing commitment that grows until we are in the arms of the God who loves us.
