The message of this week’s gospel is clear. To see, we need to look. To hear, we need to listen. To experience, we need to open our minds and hearts to the possibility of God’s voice. Look at the Son. Listen to His words. Open your mind and heart to His presence. We don’t need to be on top of a mountain to experience God’s fullness. Just shake off rote and routine. He will be there.
Adults: What can you do this Lent to feel the presence of God in the routine of your daily life?
Children: Do you keep your eyes, ears, and heart open to all that God can do for you?
