Lent Reflection: March 19th

“This is the fasting I wish: releasing those bound unjustly, setting free the oppressed, sharing your bread with the hungry.” --Isaiah 58:6-7

While we may give up chocolate, or fast food, or meat during Lent, we are reminded today that our sacrifices are aimed to purify our hearts and spirits. What we aim to give up during this Lent is selfishness and pride in order to serve our brothers and sisters.
