The Second Sunday in Lent
Lenten prayers?… Check. Fasting?…Check. Giving?…Check.
We’re now one full week into Lent, and everyone is busy checking those three major boxes for the season. List-users love this little way to get ourselves complete for Lent. It’s a useful tool, but a tool has never been held responsible for art.
The season of Lent, as the banners in church remind us, is meant to be a reconciliation – a coming back to our God. That doesn’t have to be a scary word, or even as dramatic as potentially sacrificing your own child. It is an invitation to ask ourselves how much we walk with God in our everyday lives. Do we know who goes before us? Do we know who stands behind us? The second reading this week reminds us that all is well when we go through life allowing God to be our guide and companion. This week, let’s focus on simply being aware of grace within the little moments and be thankful for the spirit of God among us. ~ submitted by Melanie Paccillo, CLM
