Welcome to the the Lenten Journey 2021: Faith in a Post Pandemic World
Daily meditations during the Lenten Season by Fr. Vazken Movsesian
Day 1: No Excuses
“Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.’” – Jesus (Luke 10:8-11)
Imagine being on the receiving end of such a statement. Imagine, the Kingdom of God has come near you, so close that you can see, feel, touch, hear, and taste it. The Kingdom – the goodness, the connection with all of eternity and the universe, the promise and the fulfillment of every dream you have ever had – has come near you. You have a chance to receive it. You have a chance to lose it.
Not so hard to imagine, often I see people neglecting to take notice of the abundance of blessings that surround us continually. And truth be told, it is very easy for each of us to miss the presence of God's blessings (and the presence of God in our lives) when are not focused to feel, welcome, endure, receive and share His gift of eternal Love. Thank you for offering these daily meditations.
