I am attaching this thought for all of us to contemplate this first week of Lent—take time to listen with the ear of the heart to the movement of the Spirit of God in your life.
The Holy One speaks in what seem to us odd and strange ways. We are called to Gospel Life and Action, but in order to determine the Will of God we must learn to LISTEN. Be at Peace, follow the promptings—the key is to follow through.
Take up our cross, take care of your brothers and sisters, take care of families, take care of the stranger. Carry around someone in your heart, all day, either a name from the news media or someone from the neighborhood or the parish, but carry that child of God with you.
See you next week –
I am your bro. John, O.C.P.
