Lent is not a gloomy time, a sad time, or a depressing time for those who are remembering what God has done for them. Rather we are making room again in our life to sit with God, to discern afresh how God is moving in our parishes and communities. Our self-examination, which reveals our sin, prepares us to recognize our need for God. Then we gather Sunday by Sunday in the liturgy where our story as the people of God reminds us that God has met and still meets our need. Our fasting and self-denial give us the resources with which we can join Christ in his struggle against evil and death. Joining him in that struggle, in acts of ministry large and small, we also join him in his victory.
