Dear children! In this time of grace, when nature also prepares to give the most beautiful colors of the year, I call you, little children, to open your hearts to God the Creator for Him to transform and mould you in His image, so that all the good which has fallen asleep in your hearts may awaken to a new life and a longing towards eternity. Thank you for having responded to my call.
I really like the phrase, “so that all the good which has fallen asleep in your hearts may awaken to new life.” That pretty much sums up the meaning behind Lent. It is a time where we do not concentrate so much on what this world has to offer, but what what we have waiting for us in Heaven. Ask yourself, do you long for Heaven and work towards one day being there? Or is God’s kingdom an afterthought, an annoyance, or hindrance in your life? Like I asked in the Third Sorrowful Mystery meditation, “whose kingdom do you serve?”
