Be Thou My Vision
Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. Lent is a season for reflection and taking stock. By observing the forty days of Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness for forty days, as described in the Gospels. Jesus came through his forty days in the wilderness transformed and ready to serve as God wanted him to serve. That is our goal, as well.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 13th. Ash Wednesday is like a wake-up call. We have forty precious days to open ourselves up to God, to examine ourselves in the presence of one who created us, knows us, and loves us. We have forty days to face ourselves, and learn to not be afraid of God’s loving transformation.
