At the beginning of Lent, many of us start our 40-day journey with great intentions and grand plans to engage in all sorts of activities which will help us grow closer to God. But, being human, the stresses and activities of daily life often get in our way. We soon find our enthusiasm wanes, and we don’t fulfill those grand plans after all.
If you find yourself in this place, you’re not alone. We’re human. We make mistakes. And God expects that. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. We can renew our journey toward goodness with him each day, every hour, or even every minute if that’s what it takes to keep us moving closer to him.
As Father Richard Burke, C.P. of St. Ann’s Monastery and Basilica told us during his talk, “Living Our Baptism in Lent,” at our home, on February 18, God sees our perfection! He sees the goodness living in us! And as we grow closer to God we can make the goodness more fully alive!
