I just realized that I did not acknowledge authorship of these reflections. They are from a pamphlet passed out at Church on Ash Wednesday:The Word Among Us (Five-minutes with the WORD, Lent 2013)
… and it occurs to me that I am probably violating a copyright by posting these.
Each Lenten Day's reading is available for free on the appropriate day at the above-listed web page.
… So as much as I enjoy the effort of decorating the text with photos and posting them, and as well-intentioned as was my effort, If you want to read the daily meditation, just go to Today's Meditation
each day of Lent and read it, knowing that I will be doing the same with my little pamphlet, which was (presumably) paid for by the parish!
I will consider your position if stated with firm, well-thought-out, quiet reasoning. Hateful diatribe, ad hominem attacks and shouted rhetoric don't impress.
