This Lent - Surrender

Posted on February 17, 2021 in: General News

This Lent - Surrender

Do you ever find yourself worrying about things?  I do.

Too often I let my heart become concerned with things I cannot change or have limited control of...choices other people make, comments spoken, the speed of the driver ahead of me, the weather, etc.  Some concerns are large, others trivial; some I may be able to influence, others not at all.

Someone shared the Surrender Novena with me the other year and Father K has mentioned it recently as well; I find the prayer helpful and you may too, especially during these days of Lent.  For me, surrendering doesn't mean ignoring a concern, but rather trusting that God will provide me with insight or right action or release of it -- He knows what I need and will take care of everything.

Have a blessed Lent.
