MONDAY OF THE THRID WEEK OF LENT
In the Gospel today, Jesus Christ speaks to us about how we must always be attentive and not distracted by what others may be able to do. We have a call to realize that every person in our life was put there by the Lord for a reason. The Lord desires us to joyfully view and respect the mission and gifts of our fellow Christians and love them for all the beautiful things he is doing in their lives.
If we are attentive to what he is trying to speak to us and not distracted by our own enmity, we will realize that we have knowledge and understanding to gain from all people, especially those who come into the places we are most comfortable and speak something new. The head of all of this is Christ, who so lovingly speaks into our lives and helps us understand the ways of holiness each day. So today, I would urge you to spend time reflecting about the people the Lord has placed in your life whom you know have wisdom to share, and thank him for this gift.
- How can you continue to see the gift that each person is in your life and allow them to know you?
- In understanding the abundant love that the Lord has for each of us in all our weaknesses, how can we learn to love others as he does?

I am a recent graduate of Texas A&M and now works as a missionary with St. Paul’s Outreach at Our Lady of Wisdom Parish in San Marcos, Texas.
St. Mary’s Catholic Center will post a daily reflection from a student, former student, or staff member every day of Lent. We have compiled these reflections into a handout, given to our students on Ash Wednesday. (0)
