1st Reading: Gn 37:3-4, 12-13a, 17b-28a
One brother said "let us kill him," the other said "throw him in the desert," while the last brother said "let us sell him." Joseph, not having the slightest idea of what his brothers were plotting to him, went to them. Let us reflect on this. Walking on this season of Lent, we are invited by the Church to abstain and fast, but not only from physical food, but also from our negative emotions, like what the brothers felt in the reading--anger, jealousy and greed.
Are we still walking on the right path, or we are turning on the other way? Let us identify these negative feelings we experience today, accept them, and bring them to the hands of God. Our God who is merciful, understanding and forgiving.
