From today's first reading: "Even now, says the Lord, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the Lord, your God." (Joel 2:12-13a)
Giving things up for Lent is a good thing, but the point is to offer our attachments to God, to turn to Him. He wants the love that motivates the sacrifice. I'm not saying anything new, but it's a good reminder for ME!
Have a blessed Lent.
