note to self

Start of Lent

Today Lent starts. The first question is about a parable Jesus tells in Luke about a tax collector and a Pharisee who are praying in the temple. The Pharisee thanks God that he is not as the tax collector.

My question is: In what do I think that I am ‘better’ than others? I have pulled the Grail Queen from the Arthurian Tarot. 

                     

“I am more honest, more pure, more upright, I suffer more in doing my best (blood from the cup)…”. The list can go on for ever…I laughed about myself, seeing this card.
