Lent is a time to get back to the basics of our faith, of our personhood, what God wants for us. So what does God want for us? He wants life, life to the full, life everlasting. How do we get back to that?—By stripping away some of our attachments to enjoy to put things back into perspective.
Listen to Bishop Barron’s homily to encourage us to get to the heart of God for lent and the great permission He gives us that we need to keep in mind opposed to oppression.
