Repent and Believe

J + M + J

Lent is here. We are in the middle of the second week.

How are you doing?

I'm doing ok. Trying to make Mass daily. I'm not fasting as much as I should, and I'm going to try and begin to do better tomorrow. I gave up chocolate, but that just means more sugar cookies.

I've been watching a series by Fr. Corapi; A Lenten Retreat.

In the second hour, he talks about the immorality of America. God will not tolerate our immorality. 9/11 will look like a walk in the park compared to what's coming. We need to wake up as a nation. Allowing abortion on demand will not be tolerated.

We have to have faith. What's faith? Think about that for a second. What is faith? Is faith believing in God? Well, that's a start. But the devil believes in God. So there must be more. The Catechism says, "In faith, the human intellect and will cooperate with divine grace: "Believing is an act of the intellect assenting to the divine truth by command of the will moved by God through grace."" (155).

Faith is assenting to the will of God. Believing is cooperating with the truth that is Jesus Christ.

Repent. Believe. That is the teaching of Christ. (Matt 3:2, 4:17)
