Self- Renunciation, Part II

(Lent is about humbling one's self and taking on the nature of Christ. Each Sunday during this time I will let wise Christians speak on these subjects, the first 3 weeks about self-renunciation and the next 3 weeks on spiritual formation. On Easter the subject will be the resurrection of Christ.)

Second Sunday of Lent

"MY CHILD, I will teach you now the way of peace and true liberty. Seek, child, to do the will of others rather than your own. Always choose to have less rather than more. Look always for the last place and seek to be beneath all others. Always wish and pray that the will of God be fully carried out in you. Behold, such will enter into the realm of peace and rest."

--Thomas a' Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
Book 3, Chapter 23
