With three weeks left until Easter Sunday many of you may understandably be struggling to fight your cravings for that beloved delight you’ve given up for Lent…. to motivate yourself we invite you to take a look at CAFOD’s Lenten calendar filled with prayers and actions to guide and inspire us during this period. Through daily scripture we are invited to undergo our personal spiritual journey and are reminded of the world’s poorest people.
Please see http://www.cafod.org.uk/lentcalendar
Today’s scripture is “You must love your neighbour as yourself.”
Reflection: Jesus today tells us the most important commandments: to love God and to love our neighbour.
We know that in reality it is not always so easy to reach out in love to each other, to break down the barriers that we put up between ourselves, or to work out how to love those who are far away and who we will never meet.
But this Lent, instead of looking at the differences between ourselves, we can try to recognise that each and every one of us is made in the image of God. If we truly love God, we cannot help but love our neighbour too.
Action: Show your love for your neighbour throughout the year. Order a collection box and drop in your spare change to make a difference to the lives of our neighbours across the globe.
