Thursday of the First Week of Lent

“Being a witness does not mean being a saint, but being a poor man or poor woman who says, ‘Yes, I am a sinner, but Jesus is the Lord and I will try to witness to him, and I seek to do good every day, to correct my life, to take the right path.’” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Sometimes the biggest obstacle on the road to holiness is the false perception that one must be without fault to be a worthy example of what it means to follow Jesus. How would you describe what it means to be a Christian? What helps you to return to the “right path” when you stray from following God’s way of love, mercy, and true peace?
