Meditation on the Fourth Sunday of Lent

The interior journey during Lent is the journey of Solemn Joy. This joy is not easy to achieve, but it is always possible if we are always trying and willing to practice reconciliation, understanding ourselves better, and building good relationships with others. This joy is always possible if we continue to hope and learn to live fully in every moment, even if we are weak and leave home like a second son, or selfishly arrogant and jealous like an eldest son. When we experience God’s forgiving and embracing arms with His fatherhood, we are passing through death into eternal resurrection.
