It’s important we remember that our Lenten journey is not about the sins of others, failures of government, corruption, threats of ISIS, or a hundred other evils in our world. Lent is not about “them,” but about you and me, “I” and the journey into repentance and renewal God calls us to take in these days. We can spend our energies asking dozens of questions that focus on any number of contemporary problems, diseases, natural disasters, and all the misery the human family endures. The best question, however, always starts with each of us—the “I” and our relationship to God.
- Deacon Robert
“Some people are very careful about cleaning of their shoes,
but think nothing of leaving their crucifix undusted.”
