For your contemplation: “The Call to ‘do penance’ is based not on the fact that penance will keep us in trim, but on the fact that ‘the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’ Our penance is our response to the proclamation of the Gospel message, the Kerygma which announces our salvation if we will hear God and harden not our hearts. The function of penance and self-denial is then contrition, or the ‘breaking up’ of that hardness of heart which prevents us from understanding God’s command to love, and from obeying it effectively,” –Thomas Merton.

United Methodist Church
