                                   BMBRACING THE WILL OF THE FATHER


We now enter the final stage of our journey in the season of Lent. We draw near to the crux of the all this Lenten Preparations – the experience of the Paschal Mystery. It is celebrating the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This week is punctuated by moments of silence and deeper reflections on mystery of God’s love for us – “No greater love that a man has than to give his life for his friend.” It is utterly reassuring when Jesus spoke these words. He is giving up His life for us – His friends. He has considered us His friends and not enemies. He has invited us and has welcomed us into his friendship.
