We implore you, in Christ’s name: be reconciled to God!
2 Corinthians 5:20
Last week our reflection reminded us that the core challenge of the Gospel is to love.
Lent is a good time to examine our relationships and determine how loving we are.
Is there someone who is difficult for you to love? Is there someone whom you resent?
Is there someone you need to forgive? Are you taking care of yourself?
Loving others and ourselves is not always easy. Love often requires selfless acts,
our time, and energy. Relationships take work. Healthy relationships take two people who care about each other and are willing to do what is needed to maintain the relationship.
How is your relationship with the Lord? Have you sacrificed some time to be with Him?
Have you given time to spiritual reading? Have you taken notice of the Lord’s Spirit in your life? Maybe this week you can spend some time looking at your relationship with the Lord
and determining what needs a change of your heart. The Lord is always there for us – He is just waiting for us to be with Him!
This week our school community continues to pray for Mrs. Walters, who is undergoing treatment, Ruairi McLaughlin, the Block family, the Howard family’s grandfather, Connor Haney, and Mr. Carrozza.
