Walking Through Lent: The Deep Truth of God

Today, we enter the Season of Lent. In the coming days, we will no doubt hear repeatedly about turning away from sin and taking up our crosses. It is language that can often seem harsh and might not exactly inspire the most hopeful of feelings; to suffer and deny ourselves. To what end are we being invited to offer up our Lenten sacrifices? How do we reconcile this with the image of spiritual Springtime?

Pope Benedict XVI says, ”Conversion is first and foremost a grace … that opens the heart to God’s infinite goodness.” Perhaps in being invited to abandon worldly comforts and take up our cross, we can begin to move towards a more intimate friendship with God through His Son and experience the true gratification and intimacy that many of us long for. As we unite ourselves with Christ in undertaking acts of self-denial, and realise anew our dependence on Him, may we be reminded that He is the fundamental truth of who we are, where we come from and where we must go. May we encounter the deep truth of God. LOVE.

Reflection Question:
What grace or area of healing do I want to ask for this season? What acts of sacrifice can I offer up in order to partner with God’s healing work in my life?

Truth Be Told: I am Made for More.

Most of my life has been a search for meaning and purpose. For many years, I believed that success was the answer. I worked hard, and eventually  secured a job that I was both excited and passionate about.  I did well at my job. Everything seemed to be falling into place.
