Last week in my reflection I shared that I believed that there are three important areas that we need to reflect on in order to ensure that our Lenten journey is a fruitful one. The first of these was making our relationship with God the focus of our lives. The best way to answer this question for ourselves is by answering the following question: When it comes to making a decision between spending time with God at Mass, in prayer, or in learning about our faith verses doing something else what usually wins? Are there some things that we could do different so that our relationship with God takes on a greater importance in our lives? Remember it was Jesus’ strong relationship with His Father that enabled Him to carry His Cross. I trust that we will discover the same. May our walk with Jesus during this Lenten journey help us to rediscover this truth.
God’s continued peace,
