 “When the penitential season of Lent ends, most of us eagerly return to the things we sacrificed, be it sweets, television or other leisure activities. What does this have to do with living out the Easter season? It is appropriate that the Easter season coincides with Spring, when we see signs of budding life all around us. While the Lord brings about new life in His creation during this time, in a very particular way He calls us to renewed life in Him.”
