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

After many years away from the sacrament, my mother's confession brought an unexpected joy to this Holy Saturday, and it's with that spirit of renewal that I invite you to join me in today's reflection. As we stand on the threshold of Easter, the penultimate meditations from Bishop Jacques Bossuet's "Meditations for Lent" challenge us to examine the ephemeral nature of our existence and the significance of our lives within the vast expanse of time. We ponder the genuinely lived moments versus those lost to the mundanities of daily life and consider the relative weight of our temporal achievements against an eternal backdrop. This introspection is not just a solitary journey; I ask for your prayers for my mother and all those rediscovering their faith during this sacred time.

As dusk settles, our hearts and minds turn to the Easter Vigil, the pinnacle of our Lenten journey, where the scriptural sagas unfurl the redemptive arc of our salvation history and Christ's enduring presence within it. We draw profound parallels between Moses, the liberator of the Israelites, and Jesus Christ, the ultimate sacrifice of the Paschal Lamb, exploring the deep-rooted connections that prefigure the Savior's coming. This episode is an invitation to embrace spiritual readiness and to eagerly anticipate the sacred feast that awaits us. As we prepare to conclude our Lenten fast and look forward to the final reflection on Easter Sunday, I share my heartfelt gratitude for your companionship throughout these meditations and wish you a blessed Holy Saturday and a joyous entry into Easter.
