Lent Reflection Day 2

 

SCRIPTURE:  "Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love, and relenting in punishment."  ~ Joel 2:13

 

REFLECTION

During lent, God calls us home. We remember who we truly are. We let God be God in our lives. We respond to our suffering neighbour.

 

DAILY PRACTICE

Meditate on the word “return” and ask the Holy Spirit to deepen your awareness of God’s love. Be aware of the different ways in which the Divine Love comes to you – the smile of a stranger, the presence of a friend, the beauty of a sunset, and the enjoyment of a walk. Before you go to sleep, think back on these gifts of God’s love, savour them, and give thanks for them.
