Penance and Preparation
The Season of Lent has come again. As we enter this season of penance and prayer we prepare ourselves for the triumphant entry of Christ into the Holy City. Lent is not only a time for fasting and prayer, but it is a time of purging and preparation. As we prepare ourselves for Christ's coming in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and for Holy Week and Easter it sets our hearts and minds to the knowlege and understanding of perpetual advent, as we await the eminent return of our Lord. As we fast this Lenten season let us not forget the reason we are purifying our bodies. We await Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem, into our hearts, and his triumphant return to claim, once again, his Eternal Kingdom.
