Ash Wednesday

I am going to be taking a break from blogging this Lent. I have posted a bit more detail about this at the "Family of the One" blog, but suffice it to say that this choice is my way of returning to God with my whole heart. I will resume writing on Easter Sunday. Have a most delightful Lent!

Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today brings more truth that we do not want to hear. Last week, Jesus told us to love our enemies. Now, he says we must choose between God and wealth. And he wants us to be more like birds and wildflowers. Go ahead, let yourself sputter about such notions being impractical and imprudent. Get it out of your system. And then ask yourself, has trusting in mammon brought rest to my soul?
