Why the season of Lent is encouraged?

'The only way out is the way we came in,' a Lenten reflection

Why Doesn't God Answer All My Prayers? Because Some of Them are Stupid

What you'll get is the Holy Spirit.

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning! In Christ, we are dead to sin, but sin doesn't always seem dead to us! We must ask ourselves, then: when does this hypocrisy happen? Could these events also serve as a metaphor for what awaits us when we die and return to our earlier state before we were born? We have to take the initiative to love them and not wait for them to give reasons for us to love them.

Hypocrisy can penetrate anywhere, even in our way of loving. The Christian life is a life of repentance, but that repentance is so much more than just being sorry for what we've done! - No, this is hypocrisy!

However, before he would commit himself to baptism, the young man wanted to have "a ideal knowledge" of the gospel.

"Jesus invites us to "pray always" (Doctrine and Covenants 10:5)".

The answer that I receive from the Lord is the word Grace. It's the church's regularly scheduled detox from all the sin and the crap and the debris we so easily accumulate in our frenetic existence. We are living in the end times, facing war, world conflict and distress and are awaiting the second coming of Jesus in the Rapture. I then opened the Bible to the New Testament and read, 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature'. He is very real, very present and yet not entirely detectable to our daily experience as we muddle through our own emotions and moods. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:15, "Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?" And thus one understands that all that we can live and do for our brothers is none other than the response to what God has done and continues to do for us.

The Apostle Paul, with these words, does not therefore wish to rebuke us, but rather to encourage us and to revive hope in us. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 says, "May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through".

Nicki Minaj is the undisputed queen of the USA charts
Behind "Frauds" comes the poppier "Regret In Your Tears", which sees Minaj handling the entire track on her own. Earlier this month, Nicki addressed her rival Remy Ma by predicting and boasting about this week's news.

I cordially greet French-speaking pilgrims, in particular the Chemins d'Humanité Association with Msgr.

I greet the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors taking part in today's Audience, particularly the groups from England, Sweden, Canada and the United States of America. This is not what Jesus wants for any nation or for any person. You know as in God was his dad.

I greet with affection the pilgrims from German-speaking countries, as well as the Netherlands.

Church is one of those places where we can let go and enjoy God. Have a good stay in Rome and a good Lent. I was guilty of this, myself, especially around Lent.

"As I was watching T.B. Joshua speaking through Emmanuel TV and his audience helplessly watching and listening to his accumulated lies and unfounded praise-singing directed at Jesus, I nearly cried with automatic alacrity when he said that Jesus is Almighty God".

I cordially greet Portuguese-speaking pilgrims, especially the Amadora group and citizens of the "freguesia lisboeta de Santo António", led by the Mayor. The thankful life of a joy-filled believer is noticed in this unhappy world. God wants everything to do with you.

I address a cordial greeting to Arabic-speaking pilgrims, especially those from Syria, Lebanon and the Middle East. Love lived with hypocrisy is graver than hatred; it is selfishness masked and disguised as love. But the Bible teaches us that divorce isn't the way, except in extreme cases.
