Tuesday, third week of Lent

March 1, 2016

JMJ

Blessed Tuesday!

Readings:
Daniel 3:25, 34-43 (Azariah’s prayer for mercy in the fiery furnace)
Psalm 25: 4-9 “Remember Your mercies, Lord”
+Matthew 18:21-35 (forgive seventy times seven times)

FieryFurnace
We got it wrong
by throttling
the debtors
in our midst
(forgetting
what we owe,
ourselves).

That’s why
we’re in captivity.

But if we suffer
willingly,
with prayer
and deep humility,

determined to reform
our lives,

God’s mercy
will prevail.

How do I respond to those who “owe me”?
How do I respond to God’s correction?
