That was my Lent.
Apparently, I expected more from it - to kind of knock me off my socks (is that the phrase?). I thought by at least Holy Week, I'd be glowing from all the graces I intended to receive.
But today, a small reflection is all that I can claim from Lent 2012: Even in my failure to bring Christ the Lent He deserves, He offers the Cross & Resurrection I so badly need.
His sacrifice is always the same, yesterday, today, and forever, when mine is lacking at best, and in this is my salvation. Our salvation.
"We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song." Blessed Pope John Paul II
Now, that, is something to write home about.
