Examin Saturday 22 February 2014

Lent, a time of fasting, prayer, and alms-giving in the Christian tradition, is almost upon us. It is time to plan how you will use this Holy Season to draw closer to God. As you prepare for it, think on those areas of the Christian life in which you struggle. Perhaps this year you can 'fast' from those areas of your life which lead you astray and pray for the strength to avoid what tempts you? From your regular examination of conscience you should know what those areas are. If avoiding these temptations saves you money, perhaps you might also give what you save to those less fortunate? And even if it does not, consider giving extra to the poor as a way of giving thanks to God for the opportunity this Holy Season provides you for turning away from sin and turning afresh towards towards Him.
