If you ever count the days in Lent, that other penitential season of the Church’s year, I’m reliably informed that you’ll end up with too many days for a season that’s meant to last only 40 days (‘only’ may seem an ironic term if you’ve been suitably diligent and mortified the flesh by abstaining from such staples and caffeine and alcohol). 620 more words
Truly the signs of Christ return are converging. Sadly most of us have no clue how close we are to final events breaking upon us like a burst dam. We need to pray that God will help us to put on heavenly glasses so we can see how close we are to the return of Jesus. We need to pray for courage and strength to lay aside any and every habit that stands between us and our Savior, because unlike any other time in history we can stop and say, the hour of our deliverance is at hand.
