Saturday of the Fourth Week in Lent
Does it seem as if Lent is lasting forever? Remember to go easy on yourself if you slip up and forget a Lenten promise. God calls us to be patient and to see ourselves as he does, with unconditional love.
“Lent is a favorable time for letting Christ serve us so that we in turn may become more like him.” (Pope Francis, Message for Lent, 2015)
Pray today for continued patience and strength in waiting for the joys of Easter.
Are your friends and co-workers expressing curiosity about your Lenten resolutions and wondering what’s up? Use those moments as opportunities to evangelize and explain your new habits this season.
