Lenten Reflections - Week 0

Questions to ponder during our Lenten journey.

3/1 (Ash Wednesday):  “Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God” – Joel 2:13

Reflect with me:  During Lent, we are called to repentance through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.  Can I change my heart and not just my habits?

3/2 (Thursday):  “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” – Luke 9:23

Reflect with me:  There are many things in my life that upset me. Can I carry my crosses without complaint?

3/3 (Friday):  “My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit; a contrite, humbled heart, O God, you will not scorn.” – Ps. 51:19

Reflect with me:  Am I truly “humble of heart”? Can I sacrifice my anger and frustration with the world and seek God’s will?

3/4 (Saturday):  Jesus said to them in reply, “Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do.” – Luke 5:31

Reflect with me:  What are the “sicknesses” that keep me from embracing and living my faith?

3/5 (1st Sunday Lent):  Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. – Mt. 4:1

Reflect with me:  What are the biggest temptations I face? What can I do to strengthen myself to face them?
