Fourth Sunday of Lent

Through the holy water of baptism, our heavenly Father has bestowed on us a share of the infinite riches Christ has won for us in his death and resurrection.  Yet we all have the tendency to waste that inheritance by running away from God, trying to live what many in our culture consider “the good life” – the life of comfort and self-indulgence apart from the gospel of Christ.  We know by faith and past experience that any attempt to live apart from the Lord’s grace is doomed. But, God’s hands will always be outstretched, waiting for us to return to our senses and come home to him.  The Lord’s inheritance is ours – but sadly, we can waste it if we so choose. 

Lent is a time to stop wasting the inheritance given to us so graciously by the Father of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  It is a time of conversion, a time for repentance, a time to come home to God.  The good news is: the Lord can’t wait to welcome us back… so may the Eucharist we receive help us conserve and use wisely our heavenly inheritance!
