PoC-10 1st Friday of Lent: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation

2/23/2024
The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . .Reconciliation Steps to Take as You Follow Christ Ask—Is there anyone I do not love? In what way can I allow the love of Christ to control me? Seek—Allow the image of the cross of Christ, the price Jesus paid to redeem all creation, to dominate your thoughts when you find yourself growing angry at someone. Ask the Holy Spirit to empower you to be reconciled to those who have hurt you. Knock—Meditate on 2 Corinthians 5:14–15. For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. Dwelling on Paul’s words, ask the Lord to fill you with his love so that it may be the controlling force in your life. Transform Your Life—Jesus told his disciples to be reconciled before coming to the altar with their sacrifice. If we carry anger or sin we need to be reconciled to Christ before coming to receive him in the Eucharist. This may mean making contact with people whom we have hurt and asking their forgiveness. We should also go to confession regularly, so that Holy Communion is a true sign of communion with God and all his creatures.

LSB6 – Dealing with Serious Temptation – The Life of St. Benedict – The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde O.S.B – Discerning Hearts Podcast

2/22/2024
Dealing with Serious Temptation - The Life of St. Benedict - The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde O.S.B - Discerning Hearts Podcast We continue our conversation on the life of St. Benedict by using the biography penned by St. Gregory the Great. In this episode St. Benedict deals with serious temptation. If God calls you to restrain from something for the sake of His Kingdom, for the greater Love, this can include suffering and tension. We often try to avoid that. St. Benedict desires to be free and detached. So Benedict takes action in order to be open to grace and the love of God. His method in this story may seem archaic to some, but it shouldn't stop us from examining how we deal with temptation.

2/22/2024
The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . .How to Trust and Give Thanks Steps to Take as You Follow Christ Ask—What do I need from God to follow Jesus more closely? Seek—As the day progresses, when you find yourself impatient, unloving, judgmental, lustful, or anything that strikes you as against the gospel of Jesus, ask God for the gift that will help you to be more like Christ. Knock—Meditate on James 1:17. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Spend some time giving thanks to God for how he has led you, even “through the valley of the shadow of death” to this moment. Transform Your Life—Try to make it a practice to “ask, seek, and knock” in your relationship with God. See that relationship as something that happens with every breath you take. Speak to God often!

The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . . About Repentance Steps to Take as You Follow Christ Ask—Where do I need to repent most in my life?

How might you experience the power and wisdom of God in the cross by embrac- ing the gospel more completely?

CTD1 – The Desert of Consumerism – Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion with Deacon James Keating – Discerning Hearts Podcasts

2/20/2024
Episode 1 - Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion – "The Desert of Consumerism".  Lent wants to remind us of our real identity. At first appearance a seeming “obligation,” Lent is actually a great gift. Are we brave enough to enter this desert, and then let it affect us so deeply as to turn us away from sin and false identities, turn us toward communion with the living God? The Church presents this season to us every year because it is hoped that this year will be our year to say “Yes” to Lent’s call to repentance. Lent should not be something we go through alone, but together. As the Hebrews wandered the desert for forty years, so we should enter Lent through the ecclesial community and share its challenges with brothers and sisters in Christ. Lent should not be what the elderly man in the barbershop characterized as “life as usual.” With our goal being moral conversion, let us now turn to see how God can facilitate that conversion when we take on a “lenten mind.” The post CTD1 – The Desert of Consumerism – Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion with Deacon James Keating – Discerning Hearts Podcasts appeared first on Discerning Hearts Catholic Podcasts.

How might your prayer become more like the prayer of Christ? Transform Your Life—Foster a sense of God’s presence before you begin any prayer. Speak to God from your heart, then listen. God is the most important being with whom you will ever speak. The post PoC-7 1st Tuesday of Lent: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation appeared first on Discerning Hearts Catholic Podcasts.

2/19/2024
The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . . to Live the Gospel Steps to Take as You Follow Christ Ask—Where have I encountered Christ “in the least of my brethren”? Seek—Make an effort to see Christ in the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, sick, or imprisoned. Try to reach out to those no one else notices. Knock—Meditate on Romans 2:13 For it is not hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. What are the secrets of your life that will be brought to judgment? How can you be more of a doer rather than just a listener of the Law of God? Transform Your Life—Sometimes we live as though God does not see us, yet we know that God is always present, whether or not we acknowledge him. Look over your life and try to see where God has revealed himself at various moments in your life. Then move confidently into the future, assured of God’s providential care for you.
