Verbum reconciliationis (1 Cor 5:19)


Primarily the Lenten season is a chance to come closer to God in order to listen carefully to his teaching. Regardless of the fact that many things distract our attention and prevent us from developing an intimate relationship with God. Despite the fact that our human weaknesses and sins build a barrier on the spiritual path. Despite all these obstacles we should take advantage of this special time of the year to deepen the knowledge of the Scripture. Because there is hidden wisdom we need the most. God's Word teaches that our main task is to seek union with the Lord, because through an intimate relationship with God, our life is constantly revived. The Gospel reminds us of the merciful Father who forgives our weaknesses so that we could forgive each other and offer the disinterested love. Our task is therefore to testify to the mercy of God and to instruct friends that we can always change ourselves. Being in communion with the Spirit of the Lord allows us to conduct holy and righteous life. Participation in the Spirit leads to praise and to bless God all the time. The gifts of the Holy Spirit rejoice the heart, provide inner peace, liberate from all fear, stress and anxiety.
