Has this Lenten season been really intense for you? Has it been soothing and reflective for you? Has it been life-changing? Did you know it was the Lenten season? Well, last chance! This is Holy Week and Lent will soon be over.

You see, we sometimes tend to isolate this time of year and forget that mercy, compassion, repentance and forgiveness are lifetime goals. We don’t just try them out for 40 days.

So next year, when the ashes are placed on your forehead and you hear words like, “Repent and believe the Good News,” you just might be able to say AMEN because it is what you have been doing and will continue to do every day of the year, not just for the 40 days called Lent.
