Preparation - by Claire
In truth, Lent is the preparation time we have before receiving the greatest gift of all! It is a time to get to know Jesus in a more intimate way before we recall His suffering, death and resurrection. By abstaining from the pleasures of this world, the things we like most, we slowly remove our earthly supports. Through this, we begin to have more time to spend with Jesus. If we choose, we may grow much closer to Him, abandoning our sins, comforts and supports in favor of the virtue of trust. What a worthy effort! After all, it was all of our sins and supports that lifted Jesus off the ground at His crucifixion.
In this light, let us continue whole heartedly during this Lenten Season.
