37 – Lent – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

Today marks the beginning of Lent.  In the Book of Common Prayer (1979) we can read,

“I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.”

You may want to compare this sentence with the list of spiritual disciplines we have mentioned and give some thought to what a “holy Lent” might be.
