WK 7A (2017)

Ash Wednesday is 10 days away. If we have hatred that’s gnawing at us, perhaps it suggests the focus of our Lenten discipline. If we can’t love our enemies, we can pray for the desire to love them. And, as our first act of love, we can pray for them. However, insincere it may feel, our intentions are good and our prayer will be heard. Who knows? If we stop clutching that grudge, if we surrender to doing the right thing, we might be led into love even if right now it’s not where we want to go.
