There are very few people who realise what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves into his hands,
and let themselves be formed by his grace. (Saint Ignatius)
My Lenten reflection today has centred on this quotation from St. Ignatius.
It's wonderful, abandoning all to God, terrifying and makes a person vulnerable, but wonderful.
As Michael Leunig the Australian poet wrote:
"Let it go. Let it out.
Let it all unravel.
Let it free and it can be
A path on which to travel."
I pray for grace, this Lent and always to abandon self and allow myself to be formed by God.
