Be holy as I am holy; be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect. We wouldn’t take them seriously if it weren’t for the fact that these are the Words of God to be found in the Sacred Scriptures which He inspired. Isn’t our Heavenly Father asking too much of us, expecting too much from us? Not really, if we remember that God asks of us nothing that is impossible, but makes what is difficult possible. 


“Give ourselves a shake-up”

“Rend your hearts and not your garments” (Joel 2:13). The prophetic call is a challenge for all of us, without exception, and reminds us that conversion is not a matter reducible to outward forms or vague intentions, but engages and transforms one’s entire existence from the center of the person, from the conscience. We are invited to embark on a journey in which, in defiance of the routine, we strive to open our eyes and ears, but especially the heart, to go beyond our “little garden.…..”
Lent calls us to “give ourselves a ‘shake-up’”, to remember that we are creatures, that we are not God. ….
