Lent is here again. We all probably received the Sign of the Cross on our foreheads, but what next? Lent is a time for us to discover more deeply the depth of God’s passion and love for us. It is truly a season of love. When you think about it, we are reminded to discover again where we have come from and where we are going. “Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return.”
The dust and ashes of our lives shape us into being and becoming the Christian witnesses we are. We are challenged to live the Gospel in faith and to seek healing and forgiveness. This is only possible because of the loving relationship our God has with us. Let us contemplate the Gospel this Lent and allow the great “lover of us all”, as the song says, to reveal God’s self to us and change our hearts and lives to be the people God call us to be.
