The Lord's teaching can inspire us to get going even when we are tired, distracted, worried or afraid. Be persistent! Remember, Jesus wouldn't teach it unless he was there to walk with us every step of the way.

Jonah's message of repentance transformed the people of Nineveh. We, too, can be changed as we acknowledge each day whatever keeps us from the love of Jesus Christ, repenting of our sins and receiving God's grace.

There is a sharp contrast between the response of James and John in the Gospel and the life of St. Therese (who we celebrate today.) While James and John will get it right in the end, we have the opportunity everyday to pursue the love of Christ in all aspects of our lives.

Christ's words in the Gospel of Mark are brief and to the point:

  • Repent
  • Believe in the Gospel

To do these two crucial points we look at three parts of our lives: thoughts, words, actions.  We evaluate these parts by three steps:

  1. We acknowledge the reality
  2. We make a change
  3. We put it into practice

This simple sentence has the potential to quickly and decisively evaluate our Lenten journey.
