Seton3 - Gratitude in Lent
"Go,therefore, and make disciples of all the nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you until the end of the age."—Matthew 28:19-20
“O my God, teach me to be generous
to serve you as you deserve to be served
to give without counting the cost
to fight without fear of being wounded
to work without seeking rest
and to spend myself without expecting any reward
but the knowledge that I am doing your holy will.
With gratitude in our heart and self-reflection on our mind, we can truly begin to reconcile our sinful nature with our rightful position as recipients of God’s love. We need to spend time during this Lenten season wrestling with the notion that everything in life should be treasured and considered a gift. Fr. Ted encourages families to incorporate a family conversation at dinner on what each member is grateful for each day. By sharing three pieces of gratitude each day we become more attuned to the grace of God acting in our lives.
