PoC-6 1st Monday of Lent: The Power of the Cross Lenten Meditation

The Cross of Christ Teaches Us. . . to Live the Gospel

The-CrossSteps to Take as You Follow Christ

Ask—Where have I encountered Christ “in the least of my brethren”?

Seek—Make an effort to see Christ in the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, sick, or imprisoned. Try to reach out to those no one else notices.

Knock—Meditate on Romans 2:13

For it is not hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. 

What are the secrets of your life that will be brought to judgment? How can you be more of a doer rather than just a listener of the Law of God?

Transform Your Life—Expect to meet Christ daily, first in the bread that is broken at Mass and then in the people who cross your path. See nothing as chance but everything as somehow fitting into the mysterious plan of God.
