Lent 21 ~ The Last Bastion

church-2253306_960_720

Every family, every faithful, every religious community: all united spiritually at 9 p.m. in the recitation of the Rosary, with the Mysteries of Light.   ~   Pope Francis, for the Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19 2020

 

          The one Lent observance God called me to this year is the Recitation of the Luminous Mysteries. That is a personal sign for me, a confirmation of the voice I heard 4 years ago during our nightly Rosary,

The Luminous Mysteries is the Illumination of Conscience

          There are shepherds assigned to us – our leaders, our parents, our care providers. Many of these lights that are supposed to illuminate our path ahead are beginning to stumble, waver and flicker. Many lights too are going out, one by one, leaving us in a gathering and deepening darkness of the soul.

          But on this Feast of St Joseph, we pray to seek the guidance of the simple yet wise, brave and holy foster father to Jesus who braved the darkness of his times to keep The Child King and His Mother safe. We pray that even if all our shepherd-lights blacken, one light will remain in a clear and powerful illumination.

          The light of our conscience. The last bastion for these times.

    1. Absolutely happy to be home. Heart is calm, none of the usual tug-of-war. But I have concerns that my country may not be completely transparent regarding our Covid-19 figures. It took them ages to update today’s figure. The government of the day is a bunch of crooks so I wouldn’t put anything past them.
