Collect: We invoke your mercy in humble prayer, O Lord, that you may cause us, your servants, corrected by penance and schooled by good works, to persevere sincerely in your commands and come safely to the paschal festivities.
So yesterday, my group was assigned to Pinellas Hope again. Somehow, I ended up talking to the lady who talked to me about blood moons and the end of the world before.
I just listened to her and then asked her how did it affect her capacity to love others. She tried to dodge the question, and then she spoke about how hard it is to not sin.
I told her that every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.
It was hopefully something good to leave her with.
After that, my group went to Feed America to sort boxes of donated food. It was an easy way to end our couple days of service.
Have a blessed Lent
