Rending Our Hearts This Lent
This week’s Ash Wednesday reading from Joel read:
Yet even now, says the Lord,
return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
rend your hearts and not your clothing.
As we enter into the Lenten season, God invites us to return to Him. Our sacrifices in Lent help us focus our attention back to the Lord, but most important is that our prayers and sacrifice lead us to “rend our hearts”. Lent calls each of us to open our hearts and allow God’s love into our spirits.
During this Lent, Jackson Catholic Schools are premiering “Titan Way”. Through “Titan Way”, we will share in brief spiritual reflections, prayers, and wonderings together, as a Titan community. These brief 2-3 minute videos will be sent to your phone and e-mail 2-3 times a week and provide an opportunity to all of us to “rend our heart” to the Lord — together.
In the Light of Christ,
