LENTEN JOURNEY IN DAILY LITURGY: 2nd WEEK

The first three full weeks of Lent form a liturgical unit. In each Mass a basic teaching on the spiritual life is presented for our meditation.  The Gospels teach that as followers of Christ we must actually see Christ in others; pray sincerely; forgive others; repent of our sinfulness; ask God for what we need; reconcile with others; be as merciful (compassionate) as God is; beware of hypocrisy in religious life. Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent, (four weeks before Spy Wednesday,) teaches a helpful lesson on humility and points towards Jerusalem and the suffering ahead. Thursday teaches that we must put our trust in God, not in this world. Friday’s Lenten Mass is dominated by thoughts of suffering and death. Saturday teaches the merciful forgiveness of God: in spite of our many sins against him, God remains our forgiving heavenly Father (parable of the Prodigal Son.)
