Lent Day 2: Transformation and Change
Everybody wants to be transformed, but nobody wants to change. If you truly want to be transformed you have to admit that you need to change. That’s called humility: recognizing that there’s wisdom in the whole body of Christ that’s greater than your own personal short stock of wisdom.
As we entrust ourselves to these ancient traditions, as we join our brothers and sisters in the faith going back two thousand years, we keep the same fast with them, as we’re also going to share in the glory with them.
