Lent: Friday, March 17
Posted on March 17, 2017 by Sister Carol Perry

God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
- Romans 5:5

We often miss the key word in this verse; it is “poured”. God’s grace is not doled out drop by drop, or weighed according to our merits. It flows from his superabundance, from his generosity. If we truly believed this, what a difference it could make.

Let us reflect on “poured” as a sign of how God wants to be generous to us, if we would only open our hearts.
