They forgot the God who had saved them, who had done great deeds in Egypt, Wondrous deeds in the land of Ham, terrible things at the Red Sea. Then he spoke of exterminating them, but Moses, his chosen one, Withstood him in the breach to turn back his destructive wrath. The Responsorial Psalm today encourages us to seek repentance in the mist of our sins.
Analysis Of The Lenten Reflections From A Father Who Keeps His Promises
There are times we have made other things a priority over our faith life, idolized worldly things, and forgotten all the God has done for us. However, it is important for us to remember all the good He has done for us. All of our blessings, lessons learned, and triumphs come from above. As a second semester senior, I sometimes find myself concerned with my anxieties about the future, overloaded with shifts at my job, swamped with school work, and stressed balancing friends, family, organizations, and a faith life.
This lenten season, I have attempted to take a step back, a breath of air, to remember that God is ever present.
PDF Lenten Reflections From A Father Who Keeps His Promises
Although, it can be challenging to recognize where God is in times of difficulty, I need to recall that He has gotten me this far, and He will continue to get me to graduation and beyond. Through my reflection on this psalm, I am reminded and challenged once again to pause, remember, and seek repentance this Lenten season. Thus says the LORD: In a time of favor I answer you, on the day of salvation I help you; and I have kept you and given you as a covenant to the people, To restore the land and allot the desolate heritages, Saying to the prisoners: Come out!
To those in darkness: Show yourselves! Along the ways they shall find pasture, on every bare height shall their pastures be. They shall not hunger or thirst, nor shall the scorching wind or the sun strike them; For he who pities them leads them and guides them beside springs of water.
I will cut a road through all my mountains, and make my highways level. See, some shall come from afar, others from the north and the west, and some from the land of Syene. Sing out, O heavens, and rejoice, O earth, break forth into song, you mountains. For the LORD comforts his people and shows mercy to his afflicted. Even should she forget, I will never forget you. As Memphians, Americans, and citizens of our world, we struggle with the weight of our complex and multivalent histories.
Much suffering exists in this passage, including imprisonment, hunger, thirst, and darkness. However, we are promised freedom, pastures, water and light as a result of the covenant, if we can uphold our end of the agreement.
Make prayer a priority this Lent
Grateful for recently moving to a new home, I can get caught up in the fears and anxieties of daily life; as I sinner I too often join those in Zion who say "The LORD has forsaken me; my Lord has forgotten me. There was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In these lay a large number of ill, blind, lame, and crippled. One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years.
When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be well? Now that day was a sabbath. So the Jews said to the man who was cured, "It is the sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat. After this Jesus found him in the temple area and said to him, "Look, you are well; do not sin any more, so that nothing worse may happen to you. Therefore, the Jews began to persecute Jesus because he did this on a sabbath. This man has been ill for thirty-eight years and never lost the faith that one day he might get into the pool before everyone else and be cured.
Jesus knew that he has been ill for a long time and had pity on him. With this gospel and remembering we are in Lent, we are invited to walk with this ill man. Today, we are invited to grow in faith, to trust more in the Lord and let Him guide the way. The ill man did not complain about his situation, he was not frustrated at not being able to get into the pool. When Jesus asked him if he wanted to be well, he simply explained to Jesus why he could not get into the pool even though he really wanted to, never losing his faith. This should also be our approach to difficult situations.
Our hope, our faith, has to be in Jesus and He will never let us down. The ill man had faith in Jesus and was cured, even after thirty-eight years. Let us ask to be cured too. Cured from our vices, bad habits, laziness, angriness, anxiety, selfishness, and everything else that prevents us from getting to close to God and loving other people. It requires patience, faith, and prayer. Today, let us do everything we can to be cured, to be free from any diseases, just as the ill man from the gospel, and become free sons and daughters of God.
Thus says the LORD: Lo, I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; The things of the past shall not be remembered or come to mind. Instead, there shall always be rejoicing and happiness in what I create; For I create Jerusalem to be a joy and its people to be a delight; I will rejoice in Jerusalem and exult in my people. No longer shall the sound of weeping be heard there, or the sound of crying; No longer shall there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not round out his full lifetime; He dies a mere youth who reaches but a hundred years, and he who fails of a hundred shall be thought accursed.
They shall live in the houses they build, and eat the fruit of the vineyards they plant. The season of Lent begins with crosses of ash traced on our foreheads, apt reminders of our need to truly repent and come back to Christ. To me, this practice is deeply meaningful.
It seems to clear away the fog and motivates me to seek out where I stand in the mazelike complexities of daily life. Once I am found, the ashes tell me where I need to place myself: in the crucified hands of Christ. Moments in which I seem to know this so clearly are poignant. I always try to cling to them like a rope, reminding me to allow myself to change during Lent, to grow at least a little bit closer to God than I was before. Despite this moment of clarity, with the middle of Lent often comes a sense of confusion.
However, a slight error slips out here. Lent is not about me doing well with myself but allowing God to do well with me. Isaiah speaks of God creating a new heaven and a new earth, in which all will be blessed with a full life, a home, and a fruitful vineyard. Christians recognize the beginning of this joyful new creation in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
About This Item
Lent reawakens us to the reality that out of the old ashes comes new life, encouraging us to step out of our old ways in the direction of a truly holy, happy life. Joy, I believe, is what waits for me at the end of this path. After a few days, the younger son collected all his belongings and set off to a distant country where he squandered his inheritance on a life of dissipation. When he had freely spent everything, a severe famine struck that country, and he found himself in dire need.
So he hired himself out to one of the local citizens who sent him to his farm to tend the swine.
