Wednesday, first week of Lent (Seven Founders of the Order of Servites)

February 17, 2016

JMJ

Blessed Ember Wednesday!

And Blessed Seven Founders of the Order of Servites’ Day :).

Readings (specific to the Seven Founders of the Order of Servites):
Romans 8:26-30 (we’re predestined to be conformed to the image of God’s Son–Who’s the Firstborn of many brothers)
Psalm 34:2-11 “Taste and see the goodness of the Lord”
+Matthew 19:27-29 (Whatever we’ve given up for God’s sake, we’ll receive a hundred times more)

We have left everything
~Matthew 19:27

But what I’ve left
are things of death
of emptiness,
futility.

And in their place,
the Spirit
Who transforms all things
–including me–
has flooded me
with life.

Those who look up
to Him
are radiant
with joy.

Have I left behind my deadly self-sufficiency so God can fill me with His joy?
