Called, Annunciation, Perspective & Relationship, Pacific Crest Hiking 3.11.30

  • In this season of Lent, we are called to share the gospel. Like Moses, we must listen to and depend on God who gives us grace through the sacraments.
  • Father shares the differences in the accounts of the annunciation of our Lord to Mary through the Angel Gabriel and the annunciation of our Lord to Joseph.
  • How does our limited perspective affect our relationship with God? Do we see the hand of God in our lives? We are called to see things from God’s perspective.
  • Today’s readings remind Father Matthew of memories of hiking the Pacific Crest trail: the first shower back in civilization was exhilarating. Confession purifies us of the messiness of sin. God wants to restore us!
