The Solemnity of LentCheryle Baviera
The solemnity of Lent reminds us to nourish our souls with an overflowing sanctification that only God deeply understands even without saying a word. This is the best time of the year to become much closer with Him, no matter how unfaithful we are before His Father’s majestic throne. More so, its yearly observance allows us to come to terms with the realization that nobody is perfect. However, we must strive for it as we continue our life’s journey until we meet our final curtain call.
Lent gives us the chance to truly repent for all our inequities and weaknesses that made us fall into sin each and everyday of our busy and active lifestyles. We might not be able to realize this sweet reality that Jesus Christ wants us to have an eternal life if we only learn to trust in Him through our incessant prayer and strong faith that tenderly bind together our heart, mind, body and soul to become one with Christ’s love and mercy until the end of time.
Needless to say, the Lenten Season endears us to God in the most unique ways by surrendering our problems, anxieties, burdens and fears to the Holy One just like a feeble child whose weaknesses could be characterized as inevitable while we are continuously struggling to become victorious at the end of our earthly existence.
Lent is the most magnificent celebration of genuine renewal that should come from the very depths of our inner beings in order to slowly transform us to achieve a holy and most sanctified heart, body and soul that would eventually lead us to be converted into noble human beings who will just follows God’s Divine will without a shadow of doubt. Be one with Christ and allow Him to replenish all your lost strengths and wisdom until the day that you will die in the loving bosom of God now and forever.
