Generously open to graces...


"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
