Lent is not a time to turn back or turn away from the sins of the world; instead, it is a time to confront the sin of the world by being brutally honest about the sin that is within each one of us. Lent is the call to deeper self-awareness of the mote in my eye before I offer shrill criticism of the speck in my sister’s eye. It is a time to examine the “heart” of matters at a hand: what evil lurks in my own heart and what concerns are the closest to the heart of God.
