Words of Wisdom

The Christian Church has observed the weeks before Easter as a time of penitence and spiritual self-examination.
Self examination means looking back at our past deeds analytically.

"Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabachtani."
("My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?")
-(1st of Psalm1)

"Praise the Lord, all you that are his worshippers...He has not scorned or slighted the appeal of the friendliness, nor turned his face away from me; my cry for help did not go unheeded. Take what I owe you, my song of praise before a great assembly."
St. John wrote: "If we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves ... If we say we have not sinned we make God a liar".
-(1st John 1:8, 10)

"Whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Christ ... and edify one another".
-(1st Thes. 5:10-11)

"Whether you eat or drink or whatever else you do, do it all for the glory of God"
-(1st Cor. 10:31).

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church,
" Prayer is a "vital and personal relationship with the living and true God."
-(CCC #2558)

Regarding the attitude of prayer, repentance, and humility James said:
"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up".
