Family Reflection Video: Relentless and Relent

Family Reflection Video: Relentless and Relent

strength and hope  |  lent  |  peace

Ever wonder where the journey toward holiness begins?

During Lent we are invited on a journey toward the holiness of life. Called to be saints, we should be quick to forgive others and relentless in examining our own hearts.

Find some time with your family this weekend to talk about your journey toward holiness. Encourage one another to relent and show forgiveness to all. How can you acknowledge your own shortcomings and be more compassionate to others, especially your family members? Remember, when you point your finger at someone else there are three others pointing back at you.

My friends, it has been a joy reflecting with you today. I will continue to pray for you and your family during this Lenten season. God bless
