2nd Day of Lent

Today’s Gospel: Luke 9:22-25
“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
A young man had just hiked across a long, barren stretch of land. Reporters asked what he found hardest about it. Was it the loneliness?” … “No,” he replied. “Was it the hot sun beating down on you?” “No,” he replied. “Was it the dangerous nights by the roadside?” “No,” he replied. “Well, then, what was it?” “The sand in my shoes,,” he said. That’s often the case in everyday life, also. It’s not always the big things that get us down; more often, it’s the tiny irritations. What are some of life’s tiny irritations that get us down? How can we focus on them during this Lent?
