Luis last Sunday said, “… that exile is the loss of a known world.” Now I do not want to paraphrase his sermon. It was a good as ever and I commend it to you. Instead let’s discuss maturing during Lent as a person — a worthy goal during Lenten meditation.Let us remove ourselves from exile of our true selves.
This is not something that can be done over night. We must sort through, take heart, and internally resolve our mistakes and failures. During Lent we need to find our spiritual vision and an evolving sense of values. Once these personal qualities are in place we will begin to glimpse at the nature of our life’s work and be able to help others find their own way. We will then realize the richness of our own life. it is through healing of others we heal ourselves.
