Lent Four ....


 

When our hearts refuse to let in the light of Christ we are in darkness.  The Light comes to us in many ways including the Word which we read in Scripture and hear at Mass and in the Sacraments.  However, we can be like the Pharisees in today's Gospel who refused to hear, refused to see and refused to believe.  There was no light in them, and our light is dimmed when we profess our faith but do not live it.


Jesus said that we should be light and let it shine, not hide it - or hide behind it.  St Paul says in today's Letter to the Ephesians "....be like children of light, for the effects of the light are seen in complete goodness and right living and truth."  There is a saying actions speak louder than words, and this works for good or bad.  Who will believe someone who does not practise what they preach?


We are now more than half way through Lent.  We cannot change what has gone, but we can do something about the remaining weeks before Easter.  Can we improve on our Lenten observances - giving ore time to prayer and looking at our fasting and almsgiving more seriously?  How can we use today's Readings in our lives this week?



 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
