 Lent  Week 5 -  Story from Our Community:
In Mid-February my husband passed away. Ten days later, his sister passed. Grieving has been chipping away for several years as I cared for and watched them suffer. I did not anticipate that grief would arrive with a new face via the coronavirus. For now, I take comfort in the words of

Lent  Week 4  - Bright sadness is the true message and gift of Lent.  Little by little we begin to understand or rather to feel, that the sadness of Lent is indeed “bright”, that a mysterious transformation is about to take place in us.  It is as if we were reaching a place to which the noises and the fuss of life, of the street, of all that which usually fills our days and even nights, have no access – a place where they have no power.  All that which seemed so tremendously important to us as to fill our mind, that state of anxiety which has virtually become our second nature, disappear somewhere and we begin to feel free, light and happy.  It is not the noisy and superficial happiness which comes and goes twenty times a day and is so fragile and fugitive; it is a deep happiness which comes not from single and particular reason but from our soul having, in the words of Dostoyevsky, touched “another world”.  And that which it has touched is made up of light and peace and joy, of an inexpressible trust.
