February 25 – Second Thursday of Lent

repentToday’s Gospel Acclamation

“Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory…Father I have sinned against heaven and against you.”

Daily Lent Reflection

Sin is not something we readily talk about – and it sometimes seems as if it is not fashionable to talk about it. Perhaps we think of sin as the things that we do that we judge as wrong. In this season that invites us to repent, we could think about two aspects of our own sin.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I ask myself where and when am I not conscious of God in my life? What are the areas of disunity? For example, is there a person or group of people I find difficult to love today? Is there a way I could change that today?

Over the course of today, I will consider the things I eat. Is what I eat (or the way it has been produced) contributing to anyone being exploited or treated unjustly in any way? Have I eaten more than I need today?
