⁣Make Lent of 2024 edifying with daily meditations for Lent from the famous French orator, Bishop Jacques-Benigne Bossuet.

As dawn breaks on the 35th day of Lent, we're graced with the Feast of St. Joseph, an opportunity to delve deep into the virtues that shield us from the shadow of envy and guide us toward humility. Through the profound meditations of Bishop Jacques Bossuet, provided by Sophia Institute Press, we unravel the complexities of these traits as they are illuminated in sacred scripture and our everyday lives. In a world where the clamor for recognition can lead to jealousy, we find solace and inspiration in the child-like sincerity praised by Jesus, a sincerity that challenges the stony hearts of the Pharisees and today's skeptics alike.

This episode takes us on a spiritual journey, juxtaposing the innocence of youth with the hardened envy of the Pharisees as they confront the adoration Jesus receives. Bishop Bossuet's reflections draw a stark contrast between the purity of genuine worship and the toxic nature of jealousy that consumes from within. As we ponder the Savior's timeless responses to His critics and their secret plots, we're invited to embrace the transformative power of humility. Listen closely and allow your heart to awaken to the melody of true praise, as stones once silent now echo with the voices of those who once slept in sin.
