The season of Lent is a wonderful gift from the Church. So why do I struggle every year. It is not like I don’t have a large dumpster full of sins to choose from. But, except for the year that I gave up sarcasm, I have a hard time narrowing it down to the sins that are keeping me from fulfilling my Christian vocation to agape.
I am going to blog every day. It came to me as I was on my way to the diocesan pastoral center yesterday morning. I was scheduled to be a guest on In The Heartland with Bishop Richard Pates a local program of KWKY Catholic Radio .
Then it hit me. I am one big fraud. The topic for discussion was evangelization through technology. My last blog post was on February 11th. Gulp.
To bad that there is not a Pulitzer for procrastination, avoidance, and lack of discipline, I would win. Yes I know, that I have a demanding job. So what? Who doesn’t? Besides, according to the Wall Street Journal, days are getting longer. .
In the pursuit, therefore, of discipline I will be blogging for Lent and praying more. If I cultivate discipline perhaps I will grow in love for God, neighbor and family.
Well all things are possible with God.
