generousLoveToday’s Gospel

“’It is wonderful for us to be here,’ (Mat 5:25).

Daily Lent Reflection

Today we hear an account of the Transfiguration.  It reminds us of who Jesus is and what love he showed in becoming human.  It leaves us with the simple question – what more could Jesus have done to show the strength of God’s love for humanity?  Over two thousand years, we have perhaps lost a sense of the scale of what God did.  Certainly, for many of us, our response does not truly match the generosity of God and the gifts he has given to us.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will try to keep God’s generous love in mind and respond in the light of that love.
