"Persistence and Patience"
"Keep constantly before you these two proposals that I urge you to renew often and with a holy persistence: first, never to offend God knowingly, and, second, if you should fall, never to persevere in this with your will, but, with humility and courage, to rise immediately and begin again, firmly convinced that God forgives you in the instant itself that with humility and trust you ask his forgiveness."

Initially, men are made new by the rebirth of baptism. Yet there still is required a daily renewal to repair the shortcomings of our mortal nature, and whatever degree of progress has been made there is no one who should not be more advanced. All must therefore strive to ensure that on the day of redemption no one may be found in the sins of his former life.Dear friends, what the Christian should be doing at all times should be done now with greater care and devotion, so that the Lenten fast enjoined by the apostles may be fulfilled, not simply by abstinence from food but above all by the renunciation of sin.From a sermon by Saint Leo the Great, pope(Sermo 6 de Quadragesima, 1-2: PL 54, 285-287)

"Lent: For His Glory"
here’s a question.what if we centered our lives (our decisions, our dreams, our lifestyles) around a simple thought: does this bring glory to God?if it does, run after it.if it doesn’t, then maybe you should reconsider if it’s worth your time at all.We “exist for the praise of His glory” (St. Paul), and so our lives should be centered around that.Our conversations: for His gloryOur work: for His gloryOur friendships: for His gloryOur passions: for His glory Our social media: for His glory Everything: for His glory Look through your life. The things that bring Him glory, do more of. The things that don’t? Cut them out. It might hurt at first, but they are keeping you from the point of your existence, and therefore from the fullness of life that you were made for. Jesus is worth everything you’re afraid of losing. Let your life be about His glory, and He’ll let His glory rest on your life.
