We offer you this material intended for Lent time
The experience of faith in Jesus always tends to value the small details in our daily life. We have received the imposition of the Ashes. A fleeting dust, it’s erased with water and nothing else. But it has a symbolic and significant sense that gives meaning to the gesture. Lent is a time, a way of preparing for Easter. The walk in the desert, the realization of our weaknesses, the need to reorient our life in the face of the Easter event. Our Baptism makes us partakers of God’s work. We are a people called to be prophets, preachers of the truth and life given to us by the Risen Jesus Christ. We cannot remain indifferent to the suffering, sin, and dehumanizing situations that occur in our world. We are glad and comforted to know that in the midst of all this, of our “bumpy history”, of the inconsistencies lived, Jesus calls us to follow Him.
Biblical text: (Mk 3, 13-14. 8, 34b-35)
“He went up to the mountain, called those he wanted, and brought him closer. He then appointed Twelve, whom he called apostles, to be with him and to send them to preach. If anyone wants to come after me, let him give up himself, that he will carry his Cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and the Good News will save it”
The Word of the Lord.
“Lord I want to walk with you”/
“In my weakness you become strong”
