Email from Cana 90 – Day 34
When the LORD saw that he had turned aside to look, God called out to him from the bush: Moses! Moses! He answered, “Here I am.” ~ Exodus 3:4
As we are full into the throws of Lent beginning this 5th week of the season let us remember that God has us here for a reason. There are 40 days of Lent that allow us to prepare & render our hearts to celebrate the primary liturgical solemnity of the year, EASTER SUNDAY and the Resurrection, of which there are 50 Days of celebration.
I fear that too many of us a Catholics are really good at focusing on entering into Lent and once Easter hits it’s more of a mark that Lent is over, rather than continuing on the journey into the next transformative liturgical season.
Reflect on your previous balance of Lent/Easter focus, which have you made more important?
How can you prepare now to give the 50 day Easter season a renewed focus in your family this year?
We all have the “interesting” or “glamorous” things we like to focus on in our spiritual life, similar to Hollywood’s focus on the personal relationships and development of Moses in the movies. Take some time to sit and reflect on what God is calling you to focus on for the rest of this Lent in the depth of you heart, beyond what may be on the surface.
