It is easy to become complacent and apathetic in our daily journey. We get into routines which eventually turn into ruts if we are not careful. If we are destined to have "life to the full," how do we grasp and take hold of this promise? Daily prayer, meditation upon the Sacred Scriptures, and a frequent reception of the Sacraments can keep us focused on our spiritual pilgrimage. It guides us in prioritizing all the things demanding some of our attention.
At this point in Lent, I simply pose the following questions for your prayer and reflection:
1. What is your real passion in life? What energizes you?
2. What are your spiritual gifts? (If you don't know, ask a friend to tell you.)
3. What are your opportunities to build up the Kingdom of God?
Continue to pray well during this Holy Week!
