The Lenten Journey

Lent is a time of preparation. The forty days of Lent are not accidental. 40 is a number used in the Bible to highlight preparation, gestation and renewal. It is a season of longing and anticipation as we prepare our hearts for the celebration of Easter. Lent is nothing but self-indulgence, even in our self-denial, if we do not set our hearts and minds upon Christ: his life, death, and resurrection.
