The 40-day Lenten season may be a long spiritual journey among the faithful. This is quite a long time of sacrifice and to give up on things that are insignificant with our faith. Though this is a yearly commemoration of Christ's passion, death and resurrection, still we haven't forgotten it's meaning and we keep on following the Christ for His teachings on living a Christian way.
On this Lenten season, our sacrifices would mean to receive a Divine grace. It is when we feel hopeless and defeated that God is on a rescue. When we are lost, tired and sick, God comforts us with His loving arms. We feel His presence and that grace means so much— that is His amazing grace.
No matter how undeserving we are of God's blessings, still we receive it and we accept it. That kind of saving grace is God's love to us; His love for humanity.
As we celebrate Holy week 2019, we will be going through our personal struggles that signifies our limitations; that we are one with Christ's suffering. We will also be offering our prayers and petitions for ourselves, for our families, for our communities and our country.
We may have different prayers and petitions, but the most common thing we ask for is our safety and security in times of crisis and at all times, to be spared from natural calamities, to achieve peace of mind and to experience soulful renewal.
God's grace is truly an amazing grace. We will forever be grateful for this Divine gift. A gift that uplifts our soul. A gift that makes us whole.
An amazing Lenten Journey 2019.
