First of all, let me apologize for the lack of updates on this site. It has been several months, and for that I am sorry.
We have entered the Lenten season. Most of us are giving up something for Lent such as soda (my weakness), junk food, watching TV, or something else. Some of us are taking something on, such as helping out at a soup kitchen, or spending more time exercising. All of these are good things- but we must do them in a spirit of sacrifice. When I was a kid, I would say I was giving up broccoli for Lent, which was not a sacrifice because I hated broccoli. (My mother, in her wisdom, would encourage me to give up something else.) We often give up things with a goal in mind such as losing weight. There's nothing wrong with that, but the point of Lent is to lose focus on ourselves, and to learn to rely upon the Lord. Let us truly strive for a closer union with our Lord this Lent.
