The Power of the Cross: First Week of Lent, Monday - The Cross of Christ Teaches Us to Live the Gospel

Ask — Where have I encountered Christ "in the least of my brethren"?

Seek — Make an effort to see Christ in the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, sick, or imprisoned. Try to reach out to those no one else notices.

Knock — Meditate on Romans 2:13-16. What are the secrets of your life that will be brought to judgment? How can you be more of a doer rather than just a listener of the Word of God?

Transform Your Life — Expect to meet Christ daily, first in the bread that is broken at Mass and then in the people who cross your path. See nothing as chance but everything as somehow fitting into the mysterious plan of God.
