Lent thoughts

Three Bible Stories That Teach Kids About Lent | Catholic lent, 40 ...
Sometimes one just needs to read the wisdom of those who have progressed a little further down the road of life, love and faith. Enjoy these thoughts as we travel deeper into Lent and closer to the Cross.

“No act of virtue can be great if it is not followed by advantage for others. So, no matter how much time you spend fasting, no matter how much you sleep on a hard floor and eat ashes and sigh continually, if you do no good to others, you do nothing great.” John Chrysostom 

“Lent is a time for discipline, for confession, for honesty, not because God is mean or fault- finding or finger-pointing but because he wants us to know the joy of being cleaned out, ready for all the good things he now has in store.” N.T. Wright  

Jesus -  "Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” (Matthew 9:13)

May you have a blessed day.

Living in Grace
