Lent: A Summons to Live Anew

Lent is about becoming, doing and changing
whatever it is that is blocking
the fullness of life in us right now.
Lent is a summons to live anew.

I approve of this image. But this this lovely man is definitely not something I'd advise giving up for Lent. I don't know about you but I'd much rather give up chocolate. ;)
