Lenten Reflection by Melissa Greubel

LK 9:22-25

In this Gospel, we see Jesus telling his disciples and all of us a very important life message that we should especially take to heart during the time of Lent. He says that during our life on earth we may suffer and everyone may not accept us at all times but it is worth it in the end because we will live forever with God in Heaven. The suffering and denial of some material things is our way of showing that we wish to follow Jesus. Throughout Lent this year, we should not only try to give up some thing that we consider important such as social media, sports, or our cellphones but we should also try to do something for God, such as go to Church every Sunday, pray every night to thank God, or just do nice things for others without looking for reward and praise.
