A tough one for me today, on the last even partial day of Pope Benedict’s Pontificate…
Today is Thursday of the 2nd Week of Lent.
We hear about the Station, the Collects, and then have part of Pope Benedict’s moving final General Audience on 27 February 2013.
From Benedict’s sermon:
I would like to invite everyone to renew firm trust in the Lord. I would like that we all, entrust ourselves as children to the arms of God, and rest assured that those arms support us and us to walk every day, even in times of struggle. I would like everyone to feel loved by the God who gave His Son for us and showed us His boundless love. I want everyone to feel the joy of being Christian. In a beautiful prayer to be recited daily in the morning says, “I adore you, my God, I love you with all my heart. I thank You for having created me, for having made me a Christian.” Yes, we are happy for the gift of faith: it is the most precious good, that no one can take from us! Let us thank God for this every day, with prayer and with a coherent Christian life. God loves us, but He also expects that we love Him!
