Saturday, first week of Lent

February 20, 2016

JMJ

Blessed Ember Saturday!

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)

God says
I’m not supposed to be
like everybody else.

I’m set apart
for Him
to be like Him
Whose suffering Love
disarms
the vilest foe.

Am I satisfied with being “no worse” than those around me
or is my goal to love like God loves?
