Wednesday 3rd week of Lent
Adversity reveals character. I've seen the worse of human nature in response to covid-19: hoarding, fighting, price gouging: symptoms of our selfishness. I've also seen the best of human nature. Quarantined communities rising in songs of hope, providing for the needy, a glimpse of agape love.
Masses have been suspended but Jesus is ever present. Let us show the world Christ's is with us.
“See how they love one another”—this is what the pagans observed, to their own amazement, about the early Christians. Let our light shine!
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.
