Lenten Reflections: February 20, 2018

February 20, 2018
Tuesday of the First Week of Lent
Gospel Reading: Mt 6” 7-15

“In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”( Mt 6: 7-8)

Set aside time today to slowly pray the Our Father, focusing special attention on the meaning of the words.

Ps 34: 4-7, 16-19
Mt 6: 7-15

Her (Sr Thecla’s) example and goodness are much more effective than her authority; she knows how to reconcile tenderness and resolve, prudence and strength. She was truly physically sustained by God and guided by supernatural light (AD 245).

Ps 19: -10, 15
Mt 25: 31-46

In all things, what matters most is that we do it with God: “By myself I can do nothing, with God I can do everything”. We are like so many zeroes; if we put something before them, a unit, then zero takes a value and it will be 10: and if the zeroes are two it will be 100 (FSP 54, p 253).

1 Pt 3: 18-22
Mk 1: 12-15

The creation of a vocation, of this vocation (Pauline) is greater than the creation of the whole world. God wants to be helped by us and our help lies is prayer. The harvest is rich, but there are few real laborers: we ask God to send good laborers for the good press (Diary, April 28, 1918).
