Lent Week 2: Saturday
So, God has shown us “wonderful signs” again, and he does let us “feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old”. What remains for us during Lent and indeed, throughout our life, is to make the ascent of Mount Carmel. And this journey to spiritual union with God and the perfection of our faith is accomplished with the grace of God. On our part, we must first come to our senses and repent, as the prodigal son did, and return to the Father who is waiting to embrace us. For he is “the God who removes guilt and pardons sin… who does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency”.
