Lenten Meditation for Thursday After Ash Wednesday
“Our Lord sometimes makes you feel the weight of the cross. This weight seems unbearable but you carry it because in His love and mercy, the Lord helps you and gives you strength.”
“Imagine Jesus crucified in your arms and on your chest, and say a hundred times as you kiss His chest, “This is my hope, the living source of my happiness; this is the heart of my soul; nothing will ever separate me from His love.”
~ St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Action: Today, I will carry the crosses the Lord chooses to give me, as I surrender my heart to Him, opening it up to all His life-strengthening graces. I will give up discouragement, and accept the hope that He desires to give me. For, nothing can separate me from His love.
