Lent is our gift from the church to help us move from one state to another,
through our conversion to peace and joy at Easter.
Consider these goals as you travel your Lenten journey.
- KNOW THAT YOU ARE A SINNER
The holiest people are most conscious of their sinfulness. The better
we know God and his perfection, the more clearly we see our own
faults and sins. The good news? Identifying our sinfulness leads to
healing and cleansing.
- LISTEN ATTENTIVELY
Hearing the sound of God’s voice during prayer is rare. More often,
God inspires us through Scripture, spiritual reading, homilies,
prayer meditation. Throughout Lent, use these opportunities to ask God
questions and listen for answers.
- GROW IN AUTHENTICITY
God created us to become the best possible version of ourselves. Living
authentically means saying “yes” to what helps us become that best
self and “no” to what doesn’t.
- LIVE GENEROUSLY
It is easy to notice what we don’t have but Lent invites us to live in
gratitude for what we do have. Gratitude then gives rise to generousity -
sharing God’s love and gifts with others. Generous people are encouraging,
positive, and appreciative. During Lent, notice and appreciate God’s gifts
and share them with others.
