Our Lenten Journey, March 23, 2018


Today’s Readings from the USCCB:
• • •
“By turning your eyes on God in meditation, your whole soul will be filled with God. Begin all your prayers in the presence of God.”
— St. Francis de Sales
“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.”  
— St. Augustine
“Before prayer, endeavor to realize whose Presence you are approaching, and to whom you are about to speak. We can never fully understand how we ought to behave towards God, before whom the angels tremble.”
— St. Teresa of Avila
“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.”
— Henri Nouwen
