Third Sunday of Lent

Just as the gardener is patient with the fig tree, willing to nurture it, so God is patient with us.  God awaits our growth and willingness to live in him.  To do that, we need to be open to the graces God provides us.  Do you take advantage of the ways the Church offers to nourish your spiritual life?  We need to be mindful also to show patience with others, allowing them to bloom where they are planted.
