Spending Time with Our Saviour
Lent is a time when God wants us to think deeply about these important truths.

He wants us to remember what life is really all about.
He wants to remind us of our origin and our ultimate goal.
And he wants us to renew our commitment to live in accordance with that origin and goal.
We all know how hard it can be to keep the more important things in mind.
We are surrounded by so much noise. So many other messages are grasping for our attention every waking moment.
And yet, at the same time, in our day and age, it is easier than ever to make time for the truly important things. It is easier than ever to turn off the noise.
With TiVo we don't have to miss the news, the game, or any worthy television shows - we can record them and watch it at our convenience.
With Internet podcasting, important radio broadcasts can be downloaded and listened to whenever it fits best into our schedule.
With email, cell phones, portable computers, and PDAs, we aren't chained to the office - we can get our important work done whenever and wherever we choose.
In other words, now more than ever we have the capacity to organize our own time in perfect harmony with our true priorities - if we really want to.
This Lent, let's make sure that our main priority is to spend time with our Savior.
To read about him, visit him in the Eucharist, pour our hearts out to him in prayer, and reflect on his Word in the Scriptures.

Nothing will please Christ more than our spending time with him, and nothing will do more for the health of our souls, and for the happiness of those around us.
