Horizons -I am convinced that we need a collective reset in God's love. We need to know, believe and rest in God's love and then act accordingly. This is our spiritual crisis point, and the reset is the antidote.
As my forehead was signed with ashes, I was declaring to all that I will practice Lenten exercises fully, and that as I pray, fast and give alms, my relationship with God and my fellow humans will improve.
Lent is a time to let in some fresh air, blow away the spiritual cobwebs and renew the soul. As with a physical spring cleaning when we get rid of excess "stuff," the soul must be freed of ideas that weigh down faith.
