On the Lenten Season

The Season of Lent is upon us. Here we wait for Christ’s death on the Cross and His ensuing resurrection. As we walk through these next 40 days, reading through the words of the Prophet Isaiah might be enlightening.

I am not catholic so do not always follow the practice of giving something up for Lent, this year I will be doing something a little different. Lent is a time where prepare our hearts for Holy Week, often by abstaining from something that could be replaced by contemplation of Christ and His Gospel. I have decided that I will be fasting (everything except for water) on Mondays as a way to focus on my spiritual life. This ascetic undertaking should be a reminder to me of what Christ gave up for us.
