Journey through Lent 2018 at St. Anthony's
REFLECTIONS FROM THE PEWS
Monday - Second Week of Lent
February 26, 2018

We acknowledge and confess our sins and faults through prayer: we plead for mercy. We are sinners.
 
We know God is righteous, merciful, forgiving and compassionate.  In return, God asks us to be loving, forgiving, and non-judgmental.
 
We need kindness and unselfishness in relationships with others. We do this by showing love, understanding, acceptance, compassion and forgiveness toward others (even our enemies).
 
For Lent, (“instead of giving something up”), these are the attributes I will strive to improve in and will ask God’s help in doing so.
