The beginning of Lent calls us to a change of heart and mind.
Lent bursts into our lives each year to give us the opportunity to ask the hard questions.
When we decide what to give up for Lent, we need to ask ourselves why we are giving it up.
We run from admitting that we're not perfect.
Lent is about simplification, purification, and getting priorities reestablished.
Meditation is a discipline, and you will appreciate this as soon as you try it.
A lot can happen in forty days and forty nights.
Although the commitment to reality demands solitude, it also opens us up to community.
Compassion is pure action issuing from purity of heart.
The strong, true subtleties of life win out over the habits of fantasy.
To change or repent means not only the content of our beliefs and ideas.
In peak experiences, we glimpse what life could really be like.
