Lenten Reflections by Bridget Bearss, RSCJ

Artwork and Reflection by Bridget Bearss, RSCJ

Let us make room for God
during this Lenten Season
by choosing not to do some things (Fasting) and
choosing to do other things (Feasting) 

Fast from harsh or mean words
Feast on words that encourage and support others

Fast from anger,
Feast on patience

Fast from worry,
Feast on God's love and care

Fast from sadness and depression,
Feast on joy and peace of mind

Fast from complaining
Feast on appreciation and gratitude

Fast from bitterness
Feast on forgiveness

Fast from resentment
Feast on acceptance

Fast from jealousy,
Feast on being oneself

Fast from self-centeredness
Feast on compassion for others

Fast from excess
Feast on moderation

Fast from acquiring
Feast on generosity

Fast from apathy
Feast on caring

Fast from discouragement,
Feast on hope

Fast from judging others
Feast on finding Christ in them

The above reflection by Bridget Bearss, RSCJ can be found on Looking Out My Window.  Sr. Bearss is Head of School at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills, MI and will be speaking at the 39th AASH Biennial Conference being hosted in Omaha, NE on April 12, 2013.
