St. Roderigo of Cordoba
As spring blooms I think about the second reading.
'Whoever is in Christ is a new creation." St. Paul tells us that things of old pass away through reconciliation. He implores us to be reconciled to God.
One more thing: Lent is a time for reconciliation. Be sure to take advantage of the sacrament before Easter, and make sure you take your children along too. The tale of the prodigal son is a perfect story to explain to them that no matter what we do, if we apologize to God and ask forgiveness through the sacrament of reconciliation, God takes us back. Always.
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for your boundless mercy. I'm sorry for the times I have sinned against you. Please forgive me and make me a new creation, one that reflects your love. St. Roderigo, pray for me. Amen.
