On Wednesday next we celebrate Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent. Lent is call-back time. We are called back to our true selves, to what God has created and to what he would like us to be. Lent calls us back to take a look at ourselves and where we have been over the past year and where we are at the moment. It means looking at ourselves in the mirror. The mirror that we use is the Gospel and the person of Jesus Christ. We ask ourselves how we are in relation to this measure of what we are called to be. Lent is an invitation to repentance. There may be need for change. All change will be for the better. It would be foolish to set out on a campaign of universal change. It suffices if we change one area at a time. If lying or dishonesty is a problem, then take it a day at a time, determined each day to remove this failing. It is important that in our prayer we take time to ask God for his grace and the courage and perseverance in our efforts to bring about a change of heart and behaviour.

May this lent be a time of blessing for all as we make a sincere effort to fashion our lives on the pattern of Jesus Christ.
