Saturday, first week of Lent

JMJ

Blessed Ember Saturday!

Entrance Antiphon:
The law of the Lord is perfect;
it revives the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are steadfast;
they give wisdom to the simple.

Collect:
Turn our hearts to You, eternal Father,
and grant that, seeking always the one thing necessary
and carrying out the works of charity,
we may be dedicated to Your worship.
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:
Deuteronomy 26:16-19 (you have chosen God and He has chosen you, for holiness)
Psalm 119:1-2, 4-5, 7-8 “Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord”
+Matthew 5:43-48 (love your enemies as God loves His)

What is the goal
I’m aiming for?

Am I content
to just “get by”
or have I set my heart
upon the prize
that God
designed for me?

I’m made
to be like Him.

Do I aspire
to His Cross?
