At our school Mass on Thursday, Fr. Phil Bowers reflected on his relationship with his father growing up.
He said his father used to frustrate him so much because he “just had to be right.” And the most frustrating thing of all is that his father was right.
Fr. Phil then challenged us: Is this why our relationship with God can be frustrating at times?
We know what He tells us through Scripture and the teachings of His Son are right, but they are not easy. Human beings often prefer doing what is easy over doing what is right.
Lenten challenge: What are some ways we can work through the frustration, accept that the work of God is difficult, and do what is right?
