“The cross means there is no shipwreck without hope;

there is no dark without dawn;

nor storm without haven.”

— Saint John Paul II

In today’s Gospel it says, “Before the feast of Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father.” Jesus  knew, to quote a cliché, that is is always darkest before the dawn. Let us carry that thought with us as we enter the Triduum.

“Jesus has now many lovers of the heavenly kingdom but few bearers of His cross.”

—Thomas à Kempis

 

Thomas à Kempis is the author of The Imitation of Christ, a devotional first published in 1418 in Latin, but still in wide use today. He reminds us that we can often be distracted by the promise of the beauty of heaven and sometimes forget the importance of the Cross. During Holy Week, we are reminded every day in readings and at Masses how powerful and essential being connected to the Cross is for our salvation.

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us —

and He has given us everything.

Every breath we draw is a gift of His love….”

— Thomas Merton

 

Let us remember to be grateful for the sacrifice Jesus made for us — his life, so that we may have life.

Our Lenten Journey | March 25, 2015, Feast of the Annunciation

““My soul magnifies the Lord,

And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

For He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden,

For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.”

— Canticle of Mary

Although it is Lent, today we celebrate joyfully Mary’s acceptance of God’s will and her beautiful words.

“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.

Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections,

but instantly set about remedying them — every day begin the task anew.”

— St. Francis de Sales

In today’s first reading, the Israelites were losing patience. At this point in Lent and we make our way toward Holy Week, it’s easy for us to lose our patience as well. St. Francis de Sales offers us optimistic advice for this point in our Lenten Journey.

““Lord, teach me …

To give and not to count the cost;

To fight and not to heed the wounds;

To toil, and not to seek for rest;

To labor, and not to ask for reward —

except to know that I am doing your will.”

— St. Ignatius of Loyola

A prayer for patience and strength from St. Ignatius to start our week.

““In the twilight of life,

God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes,

but on how well we have loved.”

— St. John of the Cross

In today’s readings, the response is “Create a clean heart in me, O God.” How can we create clean hearts within ourselves? Can being less involved with  earthly possessions and human successes” help us to have a cleaner heart, and love God and our neighbor more?

“Joy, with peace, is the sister of charity.

Serve the Lord with laughter.”

— St. Pio of Peitrelchina

 

St. Pio of Peitrelchina was a 20th century Capuchin priest and mystic. Usually known for his serious demeanor, it’s delightful for us — during this serious Lenten season — to be reminded by him of the joy and laughter we should bring to our lives.
