Have you prepared yourself to enter Holy Week? Here are some beautiful words from our Holy Father to reflect on as we approach the Easter Triduum. His comments should help you gauge where your heart is as you enter this holy time of year…
“In reality, here we discover divine justice, which is so profoundly different from its human counterpart. God has paid for us the price of the exchange in His Son, a price that is truly exorbitant. Before the justice of the Cross, man may rebel for this reveals how man is not a self-sufficient being, but in need of Another in order to realize himself fully. Conversion to Christ, believing in the Gospel, ultimately means this: to exit the illusion of self-sufficiency in order to discover and accept one’s own need – the need of others and God, the need of His forgiveness and His friendship” (Message of His Holiness Benedict XVI for Lent 2010).
Have you relied on God to transform your heart this Lent? It’s never too late to rely on His love and mercy.
Have a blessed Holy Week, from CatholicsComeHome.org.
