Lent provides another chance to renew our spiritual journey

Another Lent began on Ash Wednesday, but it may seem like the last one never ended, Bishop Edward Malesic said in his Feb. 17 homily (watch his homily HERE).

During Lent, we search for resurrection through renewal and reform with the ultimate goal of eternal life.

“Our COVID-weary souls are ready for some relief. I know mine is,” the bishop said.

He noted that the COVID-19 vaccine will be of some help, but it will never give us all we need. “In the end, we need God to lead us from this life to the next,” he said, adding that we must seek to put God first in our lives.

The bishop said Lent is one of his favorite seasons because it offers a chance for a new beginning in our spiritual journey.

We may look at the sins in our past, but we shouldn’t hold on to them because they will keep us from moving forward. He compared parts of the Lord’s Prayer with our lives and said we should begin now and let this Ash Wednesday -- and this season of Lent -- be the time for a fresh start. “Let’s not waste this time,” he said, encouraging the faithful to find their way back to the Lord through the three principals of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Increased prayer helps us expand our hearts to God. “Make room for God in prayer,” he said. During fasting, we experience a hunger for food while our souls hunger for God. And with increased almsgiving, we can learn to open our hands to serve God’s people.

“Not even a pandemic can take away the hope of eternal life,” Bishop Malesic said. “Have a blessed – and even a happy – Lent,” he added.

The Mass included the traditional blessing and distribution of ashes. In deference to the pandemic, ashes were sprinkled on the heads of the faithful rather than being applied in a cross shape to foreheads.
