In keeping with our Lenten theme, “Taking Time to Be Holy,” this Sunday we’ll consider how Jesus instructs Peter to set his mind on Divine things, and that he must deny himself, lose his life, in order to rescue his true inner Self. Last week, we considered how “temptations” draw our minds away from holiness. This week, we will examine how preoccupation with “selfishness” robs our spirits of holiness. In preparation, please read Mark 8:31-37, and ponder the inner meaning of the text.
