The Scripture that Pope Francis used for his Lenten message this year is from James 5:8.
“Set Your Hearts Firm” is the summary of this verse.
Being strong is a challenge that we all face. I know so often that I want to do the best but I fall short. It’s easy to tell other people what to do but being strong and disciplined is a great challenge.
This exhortation from Pope Francis to set our hearts firm can only work when it’s built on a foundation of daily prayer. Prayer enables us to lean into God even when we fail.
Prayer has enabled many people to far surpass their personal strength in living as they ought.
ACTION: During this Lent where do you need to be firm? When you have decided this take it to prayer and ask God to strengthen you in that area.
GOSPEL READING: Luke 4:24-30
