Wednesday, first week of Lent (Seven Founders of the Order of Servites)
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
But what I’ve left
are things of death
And in their place,
Who transforms all things
has flooded me
Those who look up
Have I left behind my deadly self-sufficiency so God can fill me with His joy?
