One of the things we focus on during Lent is repentance. We repent for the sin we have committed, for the times when we have readily stepped away from God and created disunity. We know that this is not a new problem but rather a part of the human condition—it was there when the prophets were writing.
- Today, I will identify one aspect of my life that is causing disunity between me and God. I ask for the grace to acknowledge this, to feel remorse, to make amends if necessary, and then to make a new start.
