deepenYourFaithToday’s Gospel

“’Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.,’ (Matt 5:17).”

Daily Lent Reflection

Lent is a time of deepening our faith and our understanding of God. Jesus refers to the books of the Old Testament as the Law and the Prophets and explains how he came to fulfil these words of scripture and to clarify the Law. Jesus challenged many previously held attitudes, for example to love rather than hate your enemy and to turn the other cheek rather than seek revenge.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today if  I know someone who does not like me, I will ask God to help that person change their attitude towards me and free me from any ill feeling towards them.
