As we enter Lent …
Rest in my love, trust me again
My reflection this week begins with a well-known Gospel story, the story of Zacchaeus, found in Luke’s Gospel, and entwined in this story I offer the words of that beautiful hymn, Come As You Are which was composed by Sr Deirdre Browne, IBVM.
This is a story about a man whose heart was changed and renewed, a man who was called by Jesus and loved by Jesus, even though he was a sinner. And he became a better person than he had been.
Come as you are, that’s how I want you,
Come as you are, feel quite at home,
Close to my heart, loved and forgiven,
Come as you are, why stand alone.
