Forty days and forty nights of devotion to the Lord don’t come easy, especially when it involves fasting and abstinence and extra emphasis on one’s spiritual health via prayer and the Sacraments.
The compleat Christian has the following qualities:
1) They see reality as it really is: truth is truth, lies are lies, the press is the press, Toad is Toad, drama and entertainment are just that, hyperbole is just exaggeration and
CP&S is God’s Only Truth etc. (/irony)
2) They treat every other human being that they meet or think about, with as much reverence as though they and their neighbour have Christ at their very heart, which they do, no matter how obscured. Jesus saw every person he met in this way.
3)They rely for 1) and 2) on the solid basis that God wants to be worshipped in Spirit and Truth, and Caritas. He said this in Scripture.
Have a happy AND lugubrious Lent, and God be with you all!
