February 15

Lent 2018

Thursday after Ash Wednesday


How yesterday (February 14) came to be celebrated as a feast for lovers and connected to two different possible St. Valentines is a bit of a mystery. 


Reflect today on Jesus's commandment to his disciples in today's Gospel: "If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?" (Lk 9:23-25, Lectionary).


Pray today that you may live the Gospel and be a faithful disciple of Jesus.


Part of being a disciple of Jesus is taking up the call to live as a missionary disciple, spreading the Word of God in our communities. The US bishops have an easy list of six ways to evangelize during Lent.
