Lent ……. Day Three
Friday after Ash Wednesday
It is in my weakness that I glory and I expect each day to discover new imperfections in myself.
For many, Lent is about the quest to be more perfect. Thérèse freely admitted she was not perfect but was counting on God’s merciful love. When you sense your imperfection, ask Jesus to borrow from the rich mine of God’s mercy.
Fortunately or unfortunately we usually know our own weaknesses. Remember when Adam and Eve sinned? They knew right away that was their weakness. And they tried to hide from God in the garden. But their imperfections leads us to a greater glory and all we have to do is try to file down the rough edges of our imperfections, kind of round them off if you will. We will never be perfect but maybe someday this square peg will fit in the round hole.
Today we close with an Our Father, followed by a fatima prayer..
