I did write last night but the signal died before it would post so I luckily saved it in my word processing program and am just posting it now while I seem to have a strong signal!
The adventure continues in two ways – getting connected and staying connected as well as my Lenten journey. In today’s Gospel we are confronted with an angry Jesus. So often I get sold this picture of Jesus as always happy, always forgiving. I am sure he is forgiving but I am not sold he is happy. He wasn’t then, he isn’t now. He is discontented and agitated. I and others are the cause. How often do I sin, knowing I’m sinning? Too often. Just admitting is an act of presumption, I believe he will forgive. But, I know –he is not happy, especially when my behavior dishonors His Father. How, sometimes, I wonder about his cry on the cross – “forgive them for they know not what they do.”. I do know a small part and it isn’t pretty. When will I change?
Tonight I will pray the novena and beg for mercy and the grace to change.
