March 25, 2017 Lent Reflection: The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord - 3rd Saturday of Lent (March 25, 2017) - ‘Mary said, ‘Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.’’(Luke 1:38)

Reflection

We live in a society in which humility is considered to be a weakness. We are encouraged to be proud of our abilities and push ourselves forward for recognition, even at the expense of others. Instead we should look out for others, especially the weaker members of our community, and encourage them to use their gifts.  

Challenge

  • Today I will look for an opportunity to affirm someone else and allow them to step forward as I step back to let this happen.
