Dear Sisters in the League,
Lent can be viewed as a time of spiritual cleansing; a time for taking spiritual inventory and then cleaning out everything which hinders our relationship with Christ; a time of grace and opportunity for tremendous spiritual growth. The Church recommends Lent as a time to amend our lives, to repent and to do something to improve our relationship with God. This responsibility is entirely ours.
Lent is a time when we are reminded to curb on our self indulgences, to withdraw a little bit from the world and to search for God with repentance.
Pope Francis presents to us a different way of fasting. He says: “Do you want to fast this Lent?”
Are we ready to accept God’s invitation to come back to Him? This invitation stands not just for Lent but forever. Let us place our hand into the hands of God, trusting in His guidance.
Wishing you a Happy and Holy Lenten Season.
