Thursday of the First Week of Lent

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.
