3rd Sunday of Lent

Just a brief comment this morning since I know you’ve been to church already and have heard a homily on today’s readings.  On a more general note, today’s the 3rd Sunday of Lent.  It’s three weeks until Palm Sunday, four weeks until easter.  We have plenty of time left to get our spiritual houses in order.

My suggestion for you today is to spend some time alone in quiet reflection.  Turn off the TV (gasp!) and just think about (1) all the blessings you have in your life, and (2) what you can do to make yourself the best possible version of yourself.  Ask for God’s help.  Pray to the Blessed Virgin for assistance.  Ask the Holy Spirit to descend on you and help you to achieve your goal.  Remember that Sunday is the Lord’s day.  Spend part of it, other than the 45 minutes of mass, in prayer and reflection.  You’ll be glad you did.
