Mari Kita Berbalik Arah!

  • Mimbar Flores Pos

Markus 1:12-15

Oleh Avent Saur, SVD

Pada Rabu, 18 Februari, dahi kita ditandai dengan abu; yah, setidaknya dengan abu, kita diingatkan dan disadarkan bahwa kita adalah manusia rapuh: berdosa, bertobat dan berdosa lagi; dan begitulah seterusnya silih berganti dengan dinamika yang kita sendiri lebih mengetahuinya. 754 more words
