Lent Reminds Us: We Are At War

“Lent reminds us, therefore, that Christian life is a never-ending combat in which the ‘weapons’ of prayer, fasting and penance are used. Fighting against evil, against every form of selfishness and hate, and dying to oneself to live in God is the ascetic journey that every disciple of Jesus is called to make with humility and patience, with generosity and perseverance.” ~Pope Benedict XVI
