The Lent is a proper time to strengthen our love towards God the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although we fulfill God's commandments, we should also know why we do that. The first reason comes from our heart which wants to respond with love. However, it happens that we make mistakes and forget about our main vocation which is to love God and one another. So often we do evil and behave like people without love. Consequently, we do not listen to each other but try to reach our own goals in life. While we are not obedient, we do not hear the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, in this special period we should spend more time for prayer. We are to acknowledge our offenses and weaknesses. It is not important if we are near or far from the Lord. Since every situation and moment of life is good to come closer and feel his presence. Yes, all of us are shamefaced for having sinned against our God. But we cannot lose faith in the Lord whose name are compassion and forgiveness. We do regret our trespasses and egoism in our daily life. However, we promise to make the difference and pay heed to your commands, o merciful God.
