Return to me with your whole heart

February 14, 2018 6:00 am

“Even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.” (JL 2: 12-13)  

We are losing our integrity, our “whole hearts,” being too busy, having too much concern for our daily activities, forgetting about daily meditation and minutes of silence focused on Our Lord. Ash Wednesday and Lent are perfect times to “return to the LORD with our whole hearts.” This is the best way to learn again how “gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.” 

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” (Gospel Acclamation)
