SPENDING TIME IN SILENCE

This week, spend 5 minutes each day in the classroom of silence...clear your mind, don't come before God with any agenda, just be in His presence, let him come into your heart, and give you peace.

LEAVE IT AT THE WELL: Is there something that you're carrying around, something that weighs you down, keeps you from finding joy? This week, find the well. It could be at church, in the adoration chapel, reading scripture, or in prayer. Jesus is there at your well, seek him, encounter him, and leave your burdens at the well.

DESIRE MORE: Don't settle for the little pleasures this world has to offer, God offers us infinite joy. This week, as we continue our Lenten fasts, remember, as much as we desire that thing we gave up, we should desire God even more.

PRAY.

In your life, is there someone who has left the Church?  Perhaps a parent, spouse, child, friend, or other loved one. God wants all his children to return to him, and we are called to help them on their journey. This week, pray for that person, that God has put on your heart. Pray for healing, and for an openness of mind, and heart.
