Third Week of Lent-February 28, 2016

Happy Sunday!

This Sunday we move deeply into Lent.  How will this Sunday bind you to acknowledge to walking with Christ?  He is ever-present!  We can learn to speak more openly with our lifetime companion! His face is radiant with peace, love, forgiveness and union!  Who doesn't want such a face looking back at them?   Today read the following reflection of the devotion, Stations of the Cross on the 11th Station.

"You are now stretched out upon your cross and the soldiers begin to take the spikes and drive them through your hands and feet.  You are nailed like a savage to a piece of wood.  Everybody is laughing at you; soldiers are playing dice for the few pieces of your clothing worth taking.  You give them nothing but love and kindness. And all man has to offer you are steel spikes driven through your body.  Let us pray:  Oh God, man is sometimes like an animal rather than a human being.  We hurt one another by laughing at the color of skin, or the way a man speaks or the way he dresses- All things that are unimportant we make the most important.  Never let me drive a steel spike into someone else by my display of hatred or injustice or bigotry.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
