“When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites. They neglect their appearance, so that they may appear to others to be fasting. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast anoint your head and wash our face, so that you may not appear to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who see what is hidden will repay you.”
What is the desire of your heart this Lent?
Consider allowing that desire to be fulfilled as you fast from what may block that desire from being realized.
Reflect on “Now is the day of salvation” and “All the way to heaven is heaven.”
Heritage word—“God is always reaching out to us ready to respond to our deep desires.”
(Sr. Anne Mary, 11th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
