…every man shall turn from his evil way and from the violence he has in hand.
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
Lord, please show me what I need to learn from this scattered day in order to turn from evil and see the signs you will show me.
It was day of many snags; everything took me much longer than I expected. I forgot to eat lunch until five o’clock. Now it’s 10:30 and at last I have time to review and be still. What an isolating winter this is turning out to be. Snow and ice have prevented us from having our Communion service here, and kept me from weekend Mass, too. I long to be in your Sacramental Presence. I know you are here with me, but I need the Eucharist in order to have life in you. Sustain me during this fast.
Please, if it be your will, shorten this harsh season and shelter those who are most vulnerable. Let our Lenten discipline make us more aware of the needs of others. Now, I will rest in you.
