Have we ever wondered, what converts a human heart toward goodness? What opens a soul to God? Witnessing love. The scripture reveals, witnessing God’s love is what inspires us to respond to God more completely. During this time of Lent we are asked to become more available to God, to allow our relationship with Christ to deepen. Why should we? Because of the incredible love which Christ has shown us. In the last two weeks, the Church has chosen wonderful readings from both the old and new testaments to help soften our hearts toward Christ.
