28th March 2019 Thursday 3rd Week of Lent
Jeremiah 7:23-28, Luke 11:14-23
“Think leniently of others”
In today’s Gospel passage, people saw Jesus casting out a devil from a man. They were amazed. However, their amazement did not lead them to faith, but to judge Jesus instead. They could not see goodness in His actions and words, and even attributed His good work to Beelzebul, the chief demon.
25th March 2019 Monday 3rd Week of Lent - Annunciation of the Lord
Isaiah 7:10-14, 8:10, Hebrews 10:4-10, Luke 1:26-38
"I come to obey your will, Lord"
As we approach the last weeks of Lent, we are also called by God to offer more than just external sacrifices of fasting. Like Mary, we are called to give to God our lives so that He can use us to bring goodness and love to the world. Even though we might not understand the ways of God, we continue to trust in Him.
