Uruguayan bishop invites faithful to take advantage of Lent to turn back to God

.- Bishop Raul Scarrone of Florida y Durazno said this week “in each one of us there is a heart waiting to be filled with the love of God,” and thus he called on the faithful to take advantage of the season of Lent to “authentically return to God” through interior change.

“Let us recall that Lent is an occasion for an encounter with ourselves, with others and with God.  It is through Lent that the human spirit seeks to encounter his Lord or to intensify his relationship with Him,” Bishop Scarrone said in Lenten letter.

The bishop explained that “by calling out to our hearts, God yearns that we return to the interior and spiritual dimension of ourselves, so that we can be authentic persons and not live with a heart estranged from Him or with a heart distracted by a thousand passing things that the world offers us.”

“Let’s return to our interior life and discover there the call of God to a more generous surrender, a bolder commitment and to discover the beauty of the Christian vocation that we have received in Baptism in all of its dimensions, thus becoming authentic ‘disciples and missionaries of Jesus so that in Him everyone might have life,” the bishop stated.
