The Renewal of the Mind
As we embark upon the holy season of Lent, I suggest that the following exhortation from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans inspire our prayers for the grace of conversion:
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Rom 12:1-2)
In Lent, we seek to be changed by God’s grace.
