It's Ash Wednesday!! How do you feel now that Lent is here?
Personally, I have been actually looking forward to this time of repentence and sacrifice. Lent is one of the few times a year that I find I am able to respond to the outpouring of His grace enough to be able to die to myself more often and follow a stricter code of discipline. By the time Easter arrives, I am a better version of myself. I am happier, calmer, healthier, and closer to my Lord.
Knowing this, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly I then tend to lose that better version as Ordinary Time takes over. It has honestly become a perplexing mystery to me.
Frequent reflection on pondering this mystery has brought some things to light, however, and one of them is this: God's grace mixed with the wisdom of the Church is basically a superpower. It's not a deep statement, I know. But, in my opinion, it is more than just a "fun" statement...it is fact. The saints ackowledged and demonstrated this superpower daily. Their outstanding examples reveal a superpower that is available to us at all times, not just during Lent. Still, it seems that many of us tend to find it easier to access it during this period dedicated to repentance and sacrifice.
I pray that this Lent we all tap into this superpower! Let's follow the Church's guidance for Lent and mix it with a heaping waterfall-full of grace and see what happens!
The kids will be attempting to do this in one way by participating in #vLent this year...take a look and see what the Lenten future holds for the channel!
Let the Lenten journey begin! :)
