Words of Inspiration: April 6, 2006

Today is Thursday, April 6, 2006. Let's try something new today. As Lent begins to near its end, we will soon remember Christ's death on the cross on Good Friday. Let's begin reflecting on our Lent and, if necessary, begin incorporating extra penance this week. Remember, we don't perform penance to earn salvation, but rather to show God that extra love for Him - who loved us so much that He allowed nails to be driven into His Hands and feet. He allowed a crown of thorns to pierce His Precious Head, and He allowed himself to be beaten with a rod. He allowed a Cross to burden him and wound his shoulder. Christ allowed himself to have his skin ripped apart in the scourging. He allowed Himself to die. The King of Glory came not to be honored but to die - to be condemned by sinners and to die on a tree. All of this was done out of pure love that we, His executioners, may one day be pardoned.

Today's scripture meditation:

"But sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts, being ready always to satisfy every one that asketh you a reason of that hope which is in you" (1 Peter 3:15)

I also had to include some words of Blessed Mother Teresa:

"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world."
