'Take the first step towards reconciliation...'

GREAT LENT:  The Eighth Day

"When someone takes the first step towards reconciliation, he immediately feels joy, peace and relief.  

"Why? Prior to this hatred, enmity, separation and alienation laid like a heavy burden on his shoulders.  There was also pressure from the devil who wanted his way.  

"God, on the other hand, is love and humility. 

"All of us, nonetheless - and I first - are fooled by our egoism, and seek to erect our own will. We believe that we  are correct, that we are good, that others are at fault."

~ Elder Ephraim of Arizona
