Become Empty Vessels of Humility

God has called us to be Holy. Are we doing the the things necessary to be a worthy vessel of God's grace? Have we removed the junk that impedes us from doing His work? Are we focusing on other things besides using the gifts and talents that God has given us. Remember that we can always do more. "Be perfect therefore as your Heavenly Father is perfect" Matthew5:48 Our attempts at being perfect should not be at best haphazard. Rather in all earnest, through prayer we must become first and foremost empty vessels of humility desiring God's graces. This Lent as we have ventured to this point, God urges us to do more. More prayer, more reflection, more quiet time with Him, more times at the table of the Eucharist, more self-denial, more outward selfless thinking. It could be that we need just that much more to make that lasting impression on someone, that enables them to see Christ in all we do and thus through our very being give glory to God the Father.
