When Abram prostrated himself, God spoke to him. Genesis 17:3
In the Rite of Ordination, candidates for priesthood lie prostrate on the altar as a sign of total surrender to God.
During Lent, we are invited to surrender ourselves by praying, fasting, and giving alms.
But perhaps you and I might prostrate ourselves in a different way.
Is there someone you need to forgive, or someone to whom you need to confess a wrong?
How about resting on the altar of God’s mercy for a few moments?
Leave your bitterness there.
Perhaps, in the surrender, God may speak.
