Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 2nd Sunday of Lent

Christ has asked us to follow him, carrying our daily
cross, and the end of our journey is not Calvary but
resurrection, the entrance to a life of glory with our risen
Savior. The Christian who grasps his cross closely and
willingly, knowing its value for his real life, will find it
becomes lighter and often not a burden. The man who tries to
shuffle off his cross, and who curses and rebels against him
who sent it, will find it doubles its weight and loses all the
value it was intended to have for his true welfare.
Let the thought of the Transfiguration encourage each
one of us today, to do the little God demands of us, so that
when we pass out of this life we may be assured of seeing
Christ in his glory, ready to welcome us into his everlasting,
glorious kingdom.
