Lent is the season to get back to basics, to replenish the soil in which our Christian faith grows. Pampered by creature comforts, we fall into the trap of thinking that material things will bring happiness. Instead, so often they turn out to be false escapes that lead to unhappiness and frustration. Lent is a time of quiet and purposeful reflection which helps us discover the will of God. Fasting and self-denial, backed by prayer and almsgiving, keep us growing in friendship with God. This Lent, let us make a difference. – Rev. Desmond Knowles
