Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent

Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent

Readings of the day: RB 36 The Care of the Sick in the MonasteryMass: Ex 32:7-14; Resp Ps 106; Jn 5:31-47
This is how you will know that you are my disciples, if you have love one another.(Jn 13:35)
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God, for God is love.(1 Jn 4:7-8)
Thinking about the reading from the Book of Exodus and being ‘stiff-necked’, I reflect on St Leo the Great’s comments on the passages from the Evangelist:
The faithful should therefore enter into themselves and make a true judgment on their attitudes of mind and heart. If they find some store of love’s fruit in their hearts, they must not doubt God’s presence within them. If they would increase their capacity to receive so great a guest, they should practice greater generosity in doing good, with persevering charity.
If God is love, charity should know no limit, for God cannot be confined.
HOW GOES YOUR ATTITUDE OF MIND AND HEART THIS DAY?
THE LOVE OF GOD KNOWS NO BOUNDS.
