Lent reminds us that we are on a journey. Our world, our
secular culture says, "live for today!" That implies that there
is nothing more, "live for today for tomorrow you die." We
know better. We know that we are on a journey to God's
Kingdom, a journey to eternal life with God, our Father.
As we enter the sacred time of Lent, our Lenten disciplines
remind us to keep our eyes on the Kingdom, not to be
distracted by worldly empty promises. The main Lenten
disciplines of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving help us to
remember that life is not all about me; life is not all about now.
This year let us all embrace Lent with joy. Look! The
Kingdom of God is close at hand, we can see it!
