The First Sunday of Lent

February 21, 2010

WE LEARN THROUGH TEMPTATION

Most of us think about Lent in the negative – it is a time of repentance and denial.  But Lent is ultimately a time when we rediscover who we are and what we are about.

Ultimately, we are about love – both of God and of our neighbor, but we do not understand love unless we understand its implicit sacrifice.  We can only live lovingly if our lives contain discipline.  We only learn discipline through tests, challenges and our struggles with temptation.

We learn through our mistakes.  Our mistakes are a part of a larger journey that allows us to cry out in confidence, “I LOVE!”

As for the details, you’ll just have to listen for yourself.  Many blessings.
