Children, lent is a moment of the desert, but also of an ecounter.
A moment for finding the spirit of humility, experiencing the vastness of the Universe, the sublime Laws that make us small, the Thought of God that makes us so fragile in the face of His Will.
Lent is the moment for walking in the immensity of Divine Words, written in the Book of the Plan of God for this humanity; to understand that one must walk within these lines and that the letters of the Celestial Father are like markings upon the floor, in which your feet fit perfectly. Just follow them.
During Lent, false beliefs about oneself and all the fortresses built in the sand of the human ego are overthrown. All this falls down; the fragility is revealed, but also, child, God is revealed.
You must learn to experience Lent, when the consciousness is willing to find that which is sublime and perfect and, although it reveals all the apparent human misery, it brings you the assurance of the Divine Presence and the freedom of knowing that everything is written.
And for the one who walks in the letters of God, in spite of all the battles, challenges and tests, there is the incalculable triumph of the Love of your Lord, that has no measure in this world, but only vastness.
Lent, then, is this moment to recognize the dust and leave to the dust what comes from it; but also, to recognize the spirit and open the way so that this spirit may be expressed in all that you are.
Experience Lent fully; feel small, fragile, nothing, but be able to surrender this smallness to the greatness of God and to confess:
I recognize my fragility and misery;
I recognize my imperfection and illusion,
and made of completely nothing and dust, here I am,
as an offering at the Altar of Your Spirit
so that It may be revealed within me,
and that Your Breath may make the clay alive,
and that Your Life be wholly within me
so that I may become Your instrument,
and Your Will may be done.
This should be the prayer of the hearts surrended in the face of the desert, which are willing, during Lent with the Lord, to be prepared with Him for the cross of the world.
You have My blessing for this.
