Lent: moment to make and break Habits

What is that comes to our mind when we speak of lent?

Often we see lent as a season to abstain from many things, consequently we consider it as a season which is least preferred…

However, lent can become the most significant time in the life every Christian if we change our out look towards the same. Lent is not a season of fast and abstinence alone, which is often so momentary. Rather it is a time to break and make habits which can help us to stay close to the Lord.

When seen from this perspective lent becomes a real time of personal conversation. A time of transformation of the self to the other in prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
