The mystery of grace

Artist: Angelika Kauffmann

I have very probably posted this quotation before because I like it very much. But it just came to my attention again today and is definitely worth a repeat:

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace -- only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.

- Anne Lamott, from Traveling Mercies

An illuminating Lenten exercise could well be that of reflecting on various occasions of grace throughout our lives and how we were not, indeed, left as we had been when that grace found us.

  1. What a good Lenten (or ordinary) practice!
