Lenten Moments Issue 37

Lenten Stillness 

An invitation to walk with integrity and kindness 

Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them. When they heard it, they were greatly pleased, and promised to give him money.
So he began to look for an opportunity to betray him. 
(Mark 14:10-11) 

Passion Sunday 

When we barter away our goodness and our integrity, we pay a price for it. Judas asked how many coins he would receive for handing Jesus over to his enemies. When we hand ourselves over to that which is harmful for us, it depletes us of something much more valuable than money.  
Rupp. J. (2010. p. 41). With Grateful Hearts. Twenty-third Publications: New London, USA  

What you do not transform you transmit. You prepare for the journey to a happier life by nourishing your heart with truth, beauty and love and filling your soul with forgiveness and letting go, by choosing to become the authentic person you were created to be. Then those who meet will catch off you, not fear, but energy; not darkness but a special kind of light. Daniel O’Leary, (2015. p. 29).
The Happiness Habit. Columba Press: Dublin, Ireland

May you choose authenticity and service to others 

God said not “Thou shalt not be tempested, thou shalt not be travailed”
– but God said, “Thou shalt not be overcome.”
