"What am I Lord... and Who are You?" - Prayer of St. Francis
I've been looking forward to Lent so much so, that up until last Saturday I thought tomorrow was Ash Wednesday. Even though it is only a week away, I think I will start my Lent early. I've come to think of Lent as a sort of rehab for the soul. I suppose someone else might expound on that thought, but those who need it do not require an explanation. Except perhaps to say, it's a good reminder not to look down on those who find themselves in and out of real rehab - since every year all of us are required to go through Lent - Catholic rehab for the soul. Actually, it's a really good time to stop looking down on any one...
To be what we are before God, Who is Love.
