Saturday in the First Week of Lent
Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! (Responsorial Psalm 119:1b)
Lord, how careful am I to observe Your commands and observe Your statues with all my heart and with all my soul? I am very careful when I prepare my taxes. I was very careful when I sent Santa Claus my Christmas list. I am very careful when I tell You all of the reasons I love You, but most of them are because You love me.
If we love those who love us, Jesus, what will our recompense be? To know that we can love because we are loved. May I walk in Your ways by loving because it is Your way, it is of You.
