Just a quick update and explanation of what happened: I make a resolution for short weekly updates, and then promptly fail to keep my promise. Man, if that’s not an appropriate reflection on fallen humanity here at the beginning of Lent, I don’t know what is.
The reason I was not able to keep my promise was that other time-sensitive writing assignments have come up and occupied my writing time. This Advent, in your parish seasonal materials, look for a reflection journal written by me. Several of you have written to me to tell me that you have picked up Finding Forgiveness in Lent; I pray that that is useful to you this season.
Now I am in the midst of finishing a different writing assignment that is not related to my other professional work, so I’ll still be slow to post here until that’s done. I missed an opportunity to talk about Momo (don’t bother looking it up if you don’t know what it is), but I do have some other ideas that I hope to get to during Lent. Soon.
