Rediscover that first love that we have with Christ. The Church offers us Lent as a season to recalibrate our hearts and reconnect with God in a special way. Fasting, almsgiving, and prayer are the tools we use during this season to rediscover love.
"Lent is a season that is about life transformation."
Fasting - rediscover hunger
Do you know that hunger is a good thing? Another word for hunger is passion.
When we fast, it is good to be reminded that there is a hunger in our souls for something that is crying out for someone transcendent, God. "I am hungry. Let me redirect my hunger towards God, who satisfies."
Almsgiving - rediscover poverty
It is an invitation to give to the poor.
Prayer - rediscover peace
We need to rediscover peace and the peace of Christ.
