Three Questions for Lent

1) Reconciliation sounds great as an idea, but how do you reconcile with someone who’s bitterly hurt you and won’t even acknowledge that he or she has done wrong? Isn’t forgiveness a two-way street?

2) But if justice is a good thing, why would I simply walk away from it when it comes to my own needs?

3) Why do I need to indict myself to get ready for Easter? Isn’t Easter the season of new life? Where’s the joy in spending Lent as the prosecutor at my own trial?

Lent 2011- Baptism, Discipleship – Archbishop Mancini’s Reflections

The Pope’s Lenten Message this year stresses the grace of baptism. Archbishop Mancini of Halifax has been doing brief reflections on YouTube, and elaborating on this grace in light of the Lenten Gospels. We often identify ourselves as Catholics, but neglect to appreciate that our Catholic Identity is one of discipleship, he says. Each Sunday of Lent, he elaborates on a particular feature of what it means and what it implies to be a baptized disciple. The  link to the video reflections is available on the Archdiocese of Halifax’s website. I will also make the individual links available below, as the link might change or be removed over time.
