"Dry bones and limp lives can come alive
by giving God permission to make us
what He wants us to be." - Fr. George Rutler
"We entreat you not to offer God's grace
an ineffectual welcome (II Cor 6:1).
Yes, God's grace can fill us this Lent,
provided we do not close the doors of our heart.
We must be well-disposed, we must really want to change;
we cannot play with God's grace. ...
We cannot regard this Lent
as just another liturgical season
which has simply happened to come around again.
It is a unique time: a divine aid which we should accept.
Jesus is passing by and He hopes that we will
take a great step forward — today, now."
St Josemaria Escriva
Christ is Passing By, 59
