The Priest at Mass this morning gave a very inspiring homily,  he shared some thoughts from a lay missionary couple while working in Africa.  One thought resonated with me as it tied in with what I heard on the radio on the way into work this morning.

Use only the creative word not the destructive word is what this couple tried to practice.    One lady interviewed said, “I am going to stop criticizing my neighbors”.  I wonder how often we criticize those in our families, communities, work environments.

I pray that I will use the Lenten period wisely and contribute to making the world a better place.    What will you do?
