The Fourth Sunday of Lent – Do Something

Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” This small, fragile woman was not wealthy, nor beautiful, nor in a position of power, but her acts of simple kindness to the poor and dying brought her world-wide recognition. She practiced a great truth, shared by Helen Keller who said, “I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.” May we also be ever ready to do the something we can do.

Prayer Starter

I offer myself to You and in so doing, to others. I don’t always know what I can do, but I know that You can help me to seize the moment when I can be used for good.

Delve Deeper

Volunteer with any church or other nonprofit organization in your community whose mission is important to you. Giving of yourself, your time, your talent – asking for nothing in return – is a powerful gift. Remarkably, you will likely find that you will reap the greatest reward. Be sure to include your experience in your Lenten journal.
