3 I n O u r P r a y e r s P a s t o r s C o r n e r BREAKING OPEN SCRIPTURE MARCH 15, RD SUNDAY OF LENT We give the definition of ourselves over to so many things. We allow our society, friends, family, work, social groups, ethnicity, and even institutions define, classify, and color how we perceive ourselves. When we listen predominantly to the voices of others, we lose touch with what is happening within our own inner voice. If we listen carefully within, we can easily discover that we are in want and need. We know our incompleteness and also know that loneliness, sadness, and self-images can propel us outward in attempts to fill those gaps. We can become not only victims of our own prejudices but can find ourselves overly self-indulgent in things that can only satisfy for a short time, if at all. It is no wonder that money and power are things that are so fervently sought after. As long as we can keep a steady supply going, the illusion of fulfillment and satisfaction can falsely persuade us as craftily as a master magician s act. We live with illusions not truth. It is no wonder, then, that some of the wealthiest folks are also really the unhappiest. Whether we admit it, the lies we live and pursue will ultimately expose our superficiality. We all have to wrestle with who we are and what gives our lives purpose and meaning. Learn to listen more deeply, not to what others are saying about you, but to what God is echoing in your heart. We can easily get confused and misunderstand, not only about who we are but who God is. Even the disciples and the Samaritan woman at the well missed the point Jesus was trying to make. There is only one Person who can satisfy the deepest yearnings and longings of our hearts Jesus the Messiah. It is not the work of corporate America that will lead us to happiness or greatness but the work of the soul. We continue to resist acknowledging this and are happier in our world of misunderstanding and illusion. The life-giving water we truly need doesn t come from the source of a well but from the Source of Life. Only God can reveal the truth of our sinfulness, the superficiality of our pursuits, and the illusions we hold so dear. Only Jesus can save us from ourselves and give us what we really need. If only our heads can catch up with where our hearts know they need to be, then will we find real contentment and life!

5 R. E. #lentengoals Enjoy the series below; we hope you can include some of the ideas highlighted over the next few weeks in your family s Lenten Journey! TAKE OUT: FAMILY FAITH ON THE GO By Joseph D. White, Ph.D. TIP #2 DECORATE YOUR HOME WITH CONCRETE SYMBOLS OF YOUR FAITH.Young children especially are very concrete thinkers, and they need visible signs of God s presence in your home. Statues or pictures of Jesus are especially important, because Christ is the most visible and most complete revelaon of God to humankind. Consider an icon or statue of Jesus and the children for your child s room, as this image will present the idea that God loves children and wants to be their friend. TIP #3 WITH YOUNGER CHILDREN, REFER TO GOD AS AN ADDITIONAL FAMILY MEMBER IN YOUR HOME.When your child learns to do something new, express your pride and add: And you know who else is proud of you? God is! We can t see God, but he can see us, and he is so happy with how you are growing just the way he planned! To be connued Coming Up ROSARY MAKERS!
