Words to live by

I am enjoying Father H's homilies at daily Mass this Lent. He begins each one by reminding us that in Lent it is more important to pay attention to what our Lord Jesus Christ is telling us in the Gospel of the day than it is to worry about "giving up this or giving up that or not doin' this or not doin' that." Father H tells us daily that sacrifice is a good thing, but it is only a first step--there's not a lot of point to it if we are not putting the Word of the Lord into practice.
