Thought for Today
The essence of the Christian mystic is concentrated in Lenten spirituality that involves renouncing sin, Satan and all his temptations, and great idols like money, power and pleasure. This renunciation is a necessary prerequisite in order to become a disciple of Christ and to follow in his steps, in his condition of poverty, chastity and obedience. "If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you own, give it to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me..." (Mt 19, 21) This citation is addressed to all of us, but it is a paradox and a scandal for the worldly mentality that can insinuate its way inside us.
It would be useful for all couples and teams to welcome the call of the Church to live completely in the spirit of Lent, by cultivating a climate of silence and contemplation, by turning off the radio or television, by spending more time with others, wasting time even with them, either as a couple or as a family, by paying more attention to the Endeavours, in particular, conjugal prayer and the Sit-Down. Pope Francis asks us to live and bear witness to the joy of the evangelical mission, to shine in the world with the joy of being whom we are, by living all that happens to us as if it were a gift from God and by seeing our neighbour as a blessing and the greatest gift God gives us.
