We are in the middle of our Lenten Journey. It is a time when the Church asks all faithful believers to change their lifestyles, to re-evaluate the direction of their lives, to reflect upon the values that we cherish and question whether or not these values lead us into the Kingdom of God. The Fast is supposed to break us out of the illusion we live in throughout the year, and call us into the reality of God’s Kingdom which is not a future event, but a present promise.

We cannot journey closer towards God if we are not ready to forgive one another. Lent is a time of reconciling with those from whom we have distanced ourselves. A first concrete step we should take in our Lenten journey is a step towards anyone for whom we have anger, or bitterness or hatred.
