Thursday in the Octave of Easter

Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away, and that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment and send you the Christ already appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the times of universal restoration of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old.

The call to repentance and conversion is a constant one in our lives. This is because Satan is relentless in his attacks against our spirits. The temptation to sin is a persistent challenge to us. We can only overcome the seductive song of sin by listening to God’s commandments, teachings, and inspirations. Our consciences must be attuned to hear the Word of God and not the babbling tongues of the world. We will not find refreshment or restoration in earthly things. Only heavenly ones can satisfy the longings of our hearts and lead us to eternal life.

Are we repentant for our sins? How can we be more deeply converted to the way of Christ? What can we do to realize the fulfillment of God’s Divine Plan for our lives?

O Lord, we repent of our sins and ask for you to grant us a deeper conversion.
