"We must collect our powers, desires, and affections, which have been scattered
and are lingering in the valley of the purely human; putting them all together,
we must make them converge on God, our one last end."
~ Father Gabriel, Divine Intimacy
I am gratefully welcoming this first full week of Lent. We are unplugging a little more, slowing down and clearing some clutter.
Lord, I'm grateful for the many blessings of this Lent season. Thank you for the grace to move away from world and closer to you.
