Daily habits can give glory and praise to God

What mindset or gesture would you add to this list?

by Sister Agnes Fischer

St. Paul tells us that, though Original Sin was bad news for us, through Jesus we are justified. What does Jesus ask of us during Lent in order to participate in His good news at Easter?

  • a little more patience, understanding and loving words for a spouse ...
  • a little more quality time, companionship, and interest in our parents' problems ...
  • a little more attention to our elderly, perhaps a visit, some chocolate and a smile ...
  • a little more respect for the waitress, the secretary, the bus driver, the janitor, the teacher ...
  • a little more fun with our children ...
  • a little more care for all created things including our own bodies ...

Then, we will be able to say with Jesus, “I will adore the Lord my God and God only I will serve.”

    Thanks, Sr Agnes, for this inspiring reflection. A good reminder of the fast we are called during this Lenten Season.

    Beautiful. Beautiful acts of loving kindness. Beautiful understanding of Grace.

    If I can pray with this beautiful image of God's overflowing and abundant GIFT of Grace, pouring out into humbled, contrite, and repentant hearts .... making them more kind, more loving, more patient ...... and also see JESUS as the Ultimate GIFT and MANIFESTATION of God's Gracious Mercy, I can 'become' what I pray and imagine ..........

    "... how MUCH MORE did the GRACE of God,
    and how MUCH MORE did the GRACIOUS GIFT
    of the One Man, JESUS Christ,
    overflow for the many." Rom. 5:12:15

    Good reminders for everyday life during Lent and always. Sometimes it's the little things that matter the most. Thank you.

    The "little more" is doable with God's abundant love flowing without measure!
