A time for penance, renewal
It is a little over a week before
we enter the annual Lenten sea-
son and it's another opportunity
for people to make all kinds of
resolutions in the hope of turn-
ing around their lives to become
more Christian-like. It is an op-
portunity also to show greater
love to your family and neigh-
bours---something the world
needs a lot of these days.
The holy season of Lent calls
for penance and interior renewal,
which enables us to prepare for
the great Feast of Easter, but it is
not a time for 'sack clothes and
ashes', although there are many
Catholics who make every effort
to cleanse their souls and begin
When on Ash Wednesday the
priest makes a cross with ashes
on our foreheads, he reminds
us that Genesis 3:13 says, "Re-
member man that you are dust
and unto dust you shall return."
And as Francis Hernandez says
in "His Conversation with God,"
God wants us to detach ourselves
from the things of the world, like
Carnival, and return to Him. He
wants us to abandon sin, which
makes us grow old and die and
for us to return to the fount of life
Lent is a time for getting closer
to God. Hernandez said, we can-
not let this season pass by with-
out stimulating in our souls a
deep and effective desire to go
back once again, to return like
the prodigal son to be closer to
God. St Paul says that Lent is an
excellent time for us to bring
about our conversion.
As Hernandez says, "Now is the
time when this beginning again in
Christ is going to be sustained by
a special grace from God, proper
to the liturgical season that has
just started." He continued, "That
is why the Lenten message is re-
plete with joy and hope, even
though it is a message of penance
and morti ication."
In the words of A G Dorronsoro
in his book "Time to Believe", he
wrote, "When any one of us real-
ise he is sad, he must think, 'It is
because I am not close enough to
Christ...' When one of us become
aware, for instance, of an inclina-
tion towards ill-humour, towards
bad temper, he must similarly
remind himself. If he throws the
blame on things around him, he
will be wide of the mark; he will
be looking in the wrong direction.
"Sometimes," said Hernan-
dez, "it is possible that a certain
apathy or spiritual sadness may
have its root cause in tiredness or
sickness...but it more frequently
stems from a lack of generosity in
doing what God asks of us, from
an effectually feeble struggle to
mortify our senses, from a lack
of concern for other people; in a
word, it has its origins in a state of
"If we stay close to Christ,
we will always ind the cure for
our lack of possible ardour and
recharge ourselves with the
strength to overcome our luke-
warmness and those defects that
we could never overcome by our-
selves," he added.
Let us make 'growing closer to
God' a promise we will keep, for
the upcoming Lenten season.
