You were made in the image of God. If then you wish to resemble him, follow his example.
Since the very name you bear as Christians is a profession of love for men, imitate the love of Christ.
— from a homily of St. Asterius of Amasea, in today’s Office of Readings
I am called to love other people according to the model of Christ’s love — do I really believe and accept this? How does it feel to pray for this desire?
Perhaps some inspiration from those who have lived this call before us can help: the bishops’ conference offers some reflections on some Saints for Lenten Season.
