Lent is quickly arriving…Ash Wednesday is tomorrow! In preparation for this holy season, take some time to read Pope Benedict’s beautiful Lenten reflection on God’s justice. He reminds us all that “the justice of God has been manifested through faith in Jesus Christ.”
Our Holy Father also focuses our attention on our need for God:
“Just as man needs bread, so does man have even more need of God. Saint Augustine notes: if ‘justice is that virtue which gives every one his due … where, then, is the justice of man, when he deserts the true God?’ (De civitate Dei, XIX, 21).”
