Father Z’s “LENTCAzT” – a great way to start the day!

How is Lent going for you? Are you (with God’s help) sticking to all those good resolutions that you made at its start?

But Lent is not solely about fasting and penance; another very important part of Lent is growing in our Faith, growing closer with increasing love to Him Who is Love Itself. Daily reading of Lectio Divina is one excellent way to focus more on prayer and our passing lives on earth.

Another helpful start to each day is to listen to Father Z’s daily LENTCAzT meditations on his popular blog. This one from Sunday, yesterday, based on the readings of the day that includes a lovely reflection from Pope Benedict XVI, is most inspiring. Enjoy.

  1. There’s nothing that brings down the intellectual level of a piece of writing faster than glaring errors in grammar.

    Incorrect: “increasing love to He Who is Love Itself.”

    Correct: “increasing love to Him Who is Love Itself.”

    I’d pump for glaring errors in logic, myself. But then I would, wouldn’t I?
    Maybe Robert John’s friend put him up to this?

    Incorrect: “increasing love to He Who is Love Itself.”
    Correct: “increasing love to Him Who is Love Itself.”

    Industrial-scale nit picking here, IMAO.
    But then:
    “increasing love to He/Him Whom is Love Itself.”
    Ah, what the heck? We got the point in the first place. Better stick to altar rails and altar girls.

    Apologies for my grammatical blunder this morning, RJ.😳 I am away from home at present, and seeing as how all my team-mates appear to be away too, I thought to just quickly pass on the message of Fr Z’s wonderful 5 minute meditations for anyone who might have missed them.

    Thanks for the unexpected words in defence of your old nagger, Toad, but RJ was right to point out my error!😉

    Let him (should that be he?) who is without sin – cast the first grammatical stone. Whatever that means.

    Blimey Robert…

    As for the podcast itself, it reminded me of a passage, which I was coincidentally re-reading today, from Dietrich von Hildebrand, where he remarks (in a very different context):

    …man in the realm of nature never reaches so intimate a contact with God as he does when he listens to the voice of his conscience and consciously submits to moral obligation…

    …how pale are the scope and breadth of cosmic events in contrast with the liberating transcendence of a man authentically contrite! What event could hold more grandeur than David’s response to the challenge of the prophet Nathan?
