Blessed Thursday!

Today we pass the halfway point between Ash Wednesday and Easter.
How are you doing on the journey?

Entrance Antiphon:
I am the salvation of the people, says the Lord.
Should they cry to Me in any distress, I will hear them,
and I will be their Lord for ever.

Collect:
We implore Your Majesty most humbly, O Lord,
that, as the feast of our salvation draws ever closer,
so we may press forward all the more eagerly
towards the worthy celebration of the Paschal Mystery.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Readings:
Jeremiah 7:23-28 (God’s chosen people are rebellious)
Psalm 95:1-9 “If today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts”
+Luke 11:14-23 (those who aren’t for Jesus are against Him)

Our Savior will not have
a house divided.

You either stand with Him
or else you fall
(there is no unity
without Him).

There’s no weaseling
of reasoning
with Him.

But He will heal
your stiffened neck
and hardened heart
when you once open ears
to Him–
and all will be astonished
when you speak.

What part of my heart is resisting God?
Am I willing to hand over my hard heart and stiff neck as a gift to Him,
so He can fulfill His deep desire to heal them?
