Thursday 5th week of Lent
"What are my idols?” “Where do I hide them?” These are the questions to ask ourselves today, the Pope said, concluding his homily.
“May the Lord not find us at the end of our lives and say to us: ‘You apostasised. You deviated from the way that I marked out. You prostrated yourself before an idol’. We ask the Lord for the grace of recognizing our own idols.”
This was part of the Pope's homily at a Mass this morning. Is it my career, my material possessions, my own self? What are the things I put before God?
Why did we need the coronavirus in order to turn to God? What prevented us from doing so before? If we are honest with and about ourselves we'll be able to answer the Pope's questions.
The Season of Lent is a special time for us to slow down, look inward and make the necessary changes to truly become an Easter people.
