Lentwith its intensified practices of prayer, self-denial, and almsgivingprovides us with the opportunity to "wash away the negligence of other times." But it is not a time to be dour and downcast. As Christians, we must keep in mind that Jesus was raised once and for all. St. Benedict reflects this point of view when he writes that while engaging in our Lenten practices, we should "look forward to holy Easter with joy and spiritual longing" and "with the joy of the Holy Spirit." The ageless wisdom of Benedict presented in this eBook will assist you in making your own Lenten practices less about "giving up" something, and more about "taking up" the good that God offers us in becoming more fully children of the Resurrection.
