Welcome to the season of Lent!
Here we go with another winter/spring/summer in the seasons in our area, but also 40 days in our liturgical season.
I will be honest about Lent. On one side, at times, I love Lent, like the Fish Fry’s, turning off my cell phone or computer, trying to focus spiritually and challenge myself physically. On the other side, Lent is not enjoyable, fun, or as a cakewalk, when the above does not occur successfully. Kind of like running, fishing, deer hunting, or writing theses articles every week.
Or in another thought…Lent is similar to when we have a goal over many days, weeks, or years, finding a mighty achievement. Lent is like that, though what one of our teachers told us in the seminary, “If you do not fail your goals in Lent, they are too easy.” What?
This Lent, we must get back to the basics with Jesus Christ. Now, we do have many opportunities for Lent, both in our parishes and in the Diocese of Duluth. Here you go:
