We have begun the great Season of Lent. Lent is a time for spiritual renewal, of conversion, of intensifying our spiritual practices. The fasting and abstaining that the Church requires is a reminder that this a special time in the life of the Christian. Discipline is the key. Of course, if the things we give up or do in Lent is just a matter of human willpower, we really have missed the point. It is God who begins all good things in us and brings them to completion. The discipline we need is to hear the Word of God in our lives, to learn how to be humble, and to put our trust in the Lord’s power and grace to transform our lives. The spiritual practices we do are all means to the end of having a deeper faith and trust in the Lord. Have a good and holy Lent!
