March 1 – Third Tuesday of Lent

Posted on March 1, 2016 by - Lent Reflections

shineYourLightToday’s Gospel

“’Your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father,’ (Matt 5:16).”

Daily Lent Reflection

This is done by loving one another as Christ has loved us.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will take a few moments to call to mind some of the challenging and important situations in which I am called to witness as a servant and follower of Jesus. They may be local; family, workplace or community. They may be national or worldwide; the environment, human and natural resources, the economic order or governmental affairs.
