Here are this week’s must-reads:

+ “From your kitchen to the altar, from your to-do list to your holy hour — He just wants to love you and be loved by you. It’s the simple path to a beautiful Lent = you and Jesus.” — Blessed is She

+ ” We look back on the love (my husband & I) had on our wedding day vs. now (8 years later), and I gotta tell ya, it pales in comparison. When we get to Easter, I pray we can all look back on today… and see how the love we have (for the Lord) has grown and makes the love we have now seem pale in comparison.” — Emily Frase

+ “If Christianity is about a person, that means Lent is also about a person. Lent is not simply about prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Those disciplines help us focus on what we need to focus on: namely, a person. Lent is about a person. Lent is about Jesus.” — CFR

+ “Jesus spent 40 days in the desert alone so that when we enter into the desert, we are not alone. We are with Him. We make grand plans of what “we’re going to do for Lent,” but let us not forget that God has plans for our Lent too. That’s the beauty of being in the desert with the Lord… Fewer distractions and lots of time to sit, listen and receive.” — The Simple Saints

+ “The home is where lay people are sanctified… We spend time in our home preparing ourselves for our eternal home.” — Emily Malloy

+ “Even if God’s answer is, “No, I’m not going to do that, but I’m going to make myself so present to you in your suffering that it’s going to change your heart into this fruitful garden; that all of the seeds of your suffering are going to transform into something so beautiful that you can never imagine.” We don’t have a concept for that kind of thinking — only God does. So: even if His answer isn’t the healing or removal of our pain, He is still coming in the best way possible to transform us and those around us. (Let’s ask in prayer) “Jesus, do I trust you enough that if I don’t see the answer I’m expecting to believe, that you’re still deeply at work in me?” — Heather Khym

+ “This season of preparation and sacrifice is not monotonous, instead this Lent is completely new. Every Lent is new. You can be assured… He is relentlessly pursuing you.” — Ginny and Saje

+ “Let us look to the Cross and be filled with peace, knowing that Christ has walked this road and walks it now with us.” – St. Teresa of Avila
