In this weekend’s Gospel we see the apostles saying yes to the call of Jesus. In the second reading, we also see Paul saying yes to Jesus, even after a life of trying to destroy the believers in Jesus. This of course leads all of us to reflect upon our lives in how and when we have said yes to Jesus.
We begin the great season of Lent this week to help us to prepare for the great feast of Easter. How are you going to say yes to the Lord? How are you going to deepen your yes to Jesus? The season of Lent gives us a great opportunity to reflect upon our lives.
There are many great things we can do during Lent, besides giving up candy. Why not try to make amends with people we have hurt! Why not deepen our prayer life this season. How about coming to daily Mass and hearing the scriptures as they prepare us for Easter? How about reading the bible for at least ten minutes a day? What about making sure that we go to confession? The Lord is waiting for each one of us to say “yes” to him, are you going to do it this season of Lent?
I love you!
