March 8 - So many of you are nicely "giving up" or "doing" during Lent. That helps make the season a serious attempt at triage-ing your spiritual life and applying the correct medicine. But the older we become, the more we understand this is not possible on our own. Year after year, we find ourselves battling the same flaws and sins. Many of our Lenten observances are repeat failures.
Somehow, we need to literally invite the Holy Spirit into our lives. Kidding around, we'll say...JMJ. But rarely do we invite the Paraclete, the Advocate, the Sustainer into our hearts and daily lives. The Holy Spirit is divinity itself. Specifically, call upon the Holy Spirit during these 40 days. Jesus did!
