Lenten Reflections Week 4…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on March 26, 2017

BEGIN… PREPARE… SEEK HIS MERCY…

[Brothers and Sisters] …we are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  For our sake He made Him to be sin who did not know sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Working together, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.  For He says: “In an acceptable time I heard you, and on the day of salvation I helped you.”

Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
~2Cor 5: 20- 6:2; 2nd Reading for Ash Wednesday, 2012

Week 4: Are You Struggling? Monday, March 27th… Click on the title for today’s reflection.

…all this is merely “sound and fury signifying nothing”.  God’s plan has NOT CHANGED… He has won the victory, count on it!…

My dear apostles, you remain faithful to Me and I guide you through every change.

Can it be said that the Lord devised a plan for you yesterday and again today but that the Lord will fail to make His plan for tomorrow known to you?

Will I hide My needs from you? Will I abandon the work and the workers? You know that this will never happen~Excerpt, Monthly Message, March 2012; emphasis added.

But we MUST keep our perspective.  Jesus said of these times…

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars see that you are not alarmed;  for this MUST TAKE PLACE, but THE END IS NOT YET.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and their will be FAMINES and EARTHQUAKES in various places all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs. ~Mt 24: 6-8

Now, if the God of this Universe KNEW that all this would take place, isn’t it JUST POSSIBLE that He also KNOWS what His Children will endure… Read More

My Father’s House!…

Mid week… Kind of like a CHECK-UP: Unhappy Saints… Wednesday, March 29th…

“Two years before, Jesus had shaken  up the whole city [of Jerusalem] at the beginning of His public ministry, when He drove out the money changers from the Temple…with that dramatic opening to His work, echoing the words of Jeremiah, everyone was wondering what this Prophet from Nazareth would do now that He was back in Jerusalem.” ~Fr Clifford Stevens, Homily, 4th Sunday of Lent.

[Update: If you have already read this post, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading : The Great Gift : for more encouragement as you continue your journey during these last two weeks of Lent.  If you haven’t yet read this post, no worries! The link to The Great Gift will also be at the end of this post.] 🙂

It’s just too bad that those in Jesus’ time, much like our present time, were looking only for the DIRECT results.  It would be those results that might measure the success of Him who was preaching.  Why?  Because they could not see with the Eyes of God… Read More

Rest assured, you will all be in my prayers!  I also ask that you keep me in yours!

May God Bless each and every one of YOU with abundant GRACES as we begin our 40 Days in the Desert leading up to our Crucifixion and Resurrection as we follow our Lord into His Glory!

Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Week 3: Day 14 of 40 DaysMonday March 20th…  Click on the day to read today’s reflection.

WHAT TIME IS IT?!

Yes…ALREADY! The days have been shortened considerably, ask any geologist about the earthquake in Chili and see what they have to say.  But from God’s perspective, He said while He was on earth that…

“And if those days had not been shortened no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.” ~Mt 24:22

Which again further restates what these Lenten posts have said from day one, NOW is the time to PREPARE for the coming Passion of Christ.   As St Paul tells us:

We beg you not to receive the GRACE of God in vain.  For He says, “In an acceptable time I have heard you; on a day of salvation I have helped you.”  NOW is the ACCEPTABLE TIME! NOW is the DAY OF SALVATION!~2 Cor 6: 1-2, Evening Prayer I, Second Sunday of Lent, Christian Prayer, emphasis added.

So during this “Acceptable Time” you have made a list of FIVE (5) things that you would like to change about yourself.  Habits that need… Read More

CHECK-UP!

Check Up: Our World is Changing… Wednesday, March 22nd

“The Feast of Sukkoth comes about the end of our month of September or at the beginning of our month of October.  The Jerusalem Campaign will last a little over six months, with a preaching and teaching campaign that brought memories of Isaiah and Jeremiah in the same city centuries before.  And the city is waiting for this new Prophet and everyone is wondering what will happen in Jerusalem when He gets there.” ~Fr Clifford Stevens, 2nd Sunday of Lent, Homily.

If you have been able to attend daily Mass, then you have heard within the readings that the Jerusalem Campaign is well on its way!  So far Jesus has preached several times within the Temple Mount, the Pharisees have been present for much… Read More

Rest assured, you will all be in my prayers!  I also ask that you keep me in yours!

May God Bless each and every one of YOU with abundant GRACES as we continue in our 40 Days in the Desert leading up to our Crucifixion and Resurrection as we follow our Lord into His Glory!
