Tomorrow we come to our third Sunday in Lent. It has certainly been a joyful journey. This year is the first time I have given something up for Lent. My lack of knowledge and historical ignorance has kept me from exploring this time of refreshment and meditation. Whereas some of my friends have given up all sorts of technological gadgets that they cannot live without, I decided to abandon two important items in any seminarian’s daily agenda: Beer and Bread. Whereas bread is the essence of life, beer is the liquid form of bread; or so the reasoning goes. I am reminded of our Lord’s words: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Indeed, how difficult it is to abstain from that which gives temporary life and how necessary to feast in the eternal bread of life.
