Dear Friends,

The Lent season is about shifting our focus from us to God.  [Mt. 10: 16]

By focusing on God, we will find our own true self more clearly and transparently. [Mt. 16: 24-26]

We understand ourselves better in the shadow of the Cross, the ultimate symbol God’s love and humanity and the revelation of God’s mercy. In that process we realize that we have a flawed self.

So Lent helps us to take our broken self before God and repair it. Reparation of our self before God, that is at the core of our effort during this season.

In that repairing we also restore our human relationships and set it right wherever necessary.

Let us find ways and means to find our focus and repair our relationship to God, our self and fellow human beings. Let us restore the beauty of our life.

During this Lenten period, with more disciplined spirituality and deeper examination of our inner being, let us restore the best in us. Let it shine like a light.

May God bless all of you abundantly during this Lenten season.

Yours in Christ,

George Oommenachen
