CHRIST GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US

IT’S LENT!

In the Catholic Liturgical calendar which starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on Black Saturday   is the Season of Lent.  It is our preparation for Easter.  At this time, many people want to make a retreat or a recollection to reflect on the not-so-good in oneself and to be good or better.

During Lent, we remember the passion and death of Jesus Christ.  We also remember our own part in Jesus’ passion and death.  We try to repent and make amends to lessen somehow God’s pain because of us.

“Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34).  This is also the time when God expresses His immense love for us.  He is willing to give everything for us; to claim us back to Himself; to be with Him always.  And we accept the great gift as we try to reject evil and follow God’s will.

Then we will all rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and our own resurrection too! Our Easter!

The question is – is it real for us too?  Did we experience our own small resurrections when we get over our own sufferings and pains?  Did we experience healing from a deep wound inflected by others especially from people we love?  Isn’t it more painful when the one causing it is the person we love so much?  Can we forgive?

“Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us…” (Luke 11:4)  We pray that in “Our Father”.  God forgives us as we forgive others.  It is our choice and decision.  God waits and is always ready to confirm forgiveness when we do our part.

God loves us more than anyone can ever love anyone.  Our way of expressing this love to our beloved can never equal the way God loves us.  How is our love for God?

This is the Good News:  “For God so loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that everyone who believes in Him many not die but have eternal life! “ John 3:16

Thank you Lord for giving us life and assuring us of life everlasting!
