Joy of life seems to arise from a sense of being where one belongs.
All the discontented people I know are trying sedulously to be
something they are not, to do something they cannot do. — David Grayson
I have often thought that Lent was a time to reacquaint oneself with oneself.With a healthy dose of prayer, meditation, sacrifice, and service we pull away from the person others want us to be, and something we are not.
This process is not something that occurs in a moment or a day, that’s why we maintain our discipline for forty days and nights.
That’s why I believe that lent can be the best days of the year. We begin in the dead of winter, and over the next few weeks emerge “where we belong.”
