Lent Reflections: Feb. 18, 2016

Lent provides a window of opportunity to build and fortify our relationship with God. Open the widow wide today and cultivate a prayerful silence; let the gentle breeze of God’s words flow into your heart. Be present and listen! Give thanks to the Lord, with all our hearts, for the Lord has heard the words of our mouths and answers our pleas. (See Psalm 138:1)
