Lenten reflections

Day by Day, Stone by Stone

This Lent, I want to approach Golgotha with a new awareness.

Deep in the soil at the foot of the Cross, where we find Our Lord’s most precious blood, sweat, and tears fallen to the earth, I want to ask for His grace, to plant myself and allow Him to nourish my heart where the soil of suffering has been commingled with His Most Precious Blood and Our Lady’s tears.

I pray that He would teach me how to make my own suffering and tears redemptive, rich with nutrients to grow my heart into a truly Christian heart.

I want to claim the promise of Jeremiah, when the Lord says: “I will set my eyes upon them for good…I will build them up, and not tear them down; I will plant them, and not pluck them up. I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord; and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.” (24:6-7)
