The adventure continues

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.

About sisterbernice

I am a practicing Catholic in love with the Lord. Whatever his failings, I recognize the same in our Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. He serves as one of my great teachers. A truly misunderstood figure, I hope all who have reviled him might actually read him and find their way to God.
