The Lenten Season

Wouldnít it be great if Jesus had returned to this planet, restoring humanity from depravity? Yes. I can see it now. We wonít have mortgage payments, irrational politics, and media precepts to do the thinking for us. Children obeying their parents, no more desperate housewife or sex crazed (Mad Men) husbands or the need for Jews hating Arabs or white supremacy across the world. Yes, total peace!

Before all that is set in place. Some of us honor the Lenten Season. The times were Christianity embarks on the road of activities reflecting praise, thanksgiving, supplication, and repentance. We sacrifice something for forty days like no Facebook entries or no tweeting. Oh, we canít have that, what would the product advertisers do if million of Christians stop update Facebook?

Liturgy time is time for service, a call of pulling away from a worldly activity for self. For prayer, repentance, almsgiving and self-denial, like what Christ did for us. Removing himself from deity to take on human form, to teach us how to live and love and to die for our sins.
