I know for some of us, our Lent chose us in the forms of physical or emotional or spiritual suffering. I know you’re hurting and sad and just want it to all be over. I also know if your Lent wasn’t as Lenty as you’d hoped – if, like me, you failed miserably in your chosen disciplines – you have a chance now to focus on the present.
Live as fully as you can in the spirit of these holiest of days. We’re all busy and we’re all overwhelmed, I know, but look for opportunities in the midst of your vocation to live these days well. If you can, try and make it to some or all of the beautiful Masses and services. These are the highest days in our liturgical year and the rituals we’ll celebrate have been handed down to us as a gift from our beautiful Church. They are powerful and opportunities for such grace.
