Thursday - today and preparing for Sunday
The Gospel is Matthew 7:7-12 when Jesus tells his disciples, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened."
This is always consoling to remember that Jesus said this so we would realize that God wants to give us gifts; he wants to be found; and he wants to come into our hearts and dwell there!
The readings for the Second Sunday of Lent are: Genesis 22: 1-2, 9a, 10-13, 15-18;
Romans 8:31b-34; and the Gospel is Mark 9:2-10 which is again the Transfiguration of Jesus that we discussed recently.
The Response for the Psalm is "I will walk before the LOrd, in the land of the living."
I am on Spring Break so not able to reflect but will take the first reading on Abraham being tested by God to sacrifice his son and comment on it for Sunday.
