Lent Reflection

The cross of Christ forces us to choose sides, to reorder our

priorities. It also transforms our personal crosses and gives us

hope: We have on our side someone who is victorious over all

enemies, all powers and principalities.

St. Leonard said, “Impress on yourself this great truth: Even

if all hell’s devils come after you to tempt you, you won’t sin

unless you want to—provided that you don’t trust in your own

powers, but in the assistance of God. He doesn’t refuse help to

those who ask it with a lively faith.” God offers us all the help

we need in this life, if we avail ourselves of it.
