Man has a Hole in His Head - by Mary Kate

Fulton Sheen once jokingly said that we have reason to hope because "man has a hole in his head."  What he hoped to convey is that man by himself does not fill himself with goodness and truth.  We do not fill our ears with sound, our mouths with food, our nose with smell, our eyes with sight.  Rather, they are gifts from a greater source.  This same source, our Blessed Lord, tells us that "the eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light." (Mt. 6:22)

Lent is a time to devotedly return our gaze to the One Who is the light that shines in the darkness (Jn 1:5).  Our sacrifices free us to be filled and dispose us to properly orient our gaze.  I pray that we persevere in receiving life from Our Lord this Lent as we
"return with our whole heart."  (Joel 2:12)
