Lent: A time to Encounter God in our Lives
During this Lenten season I want to focus on God’s MERCY. This year our Sunday Lenten readings (Cycle C) tell us about God’s mercy through the parable of the prodigal son and forgiveness of the woman being stoned because of the sin of adultery. We need God’s mercy because we are dependent on him for all good gifts and his forgiveness when we sin. We receive mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, in the Eucharist, and in many ways in our everyday lives. We are given this penitential time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving to invite Jesus to change us.
