If things are going so well, remember the words of St. John Paul the Great: “The future starts today, not tomorrow.”Recommit to living out your sacrifice and offer it to the Lord. Come Easter Sunday, you will be glad you did! “Lent is like a long ‘retreat’ during which we can turn back into ourselves and listen to the voice of God, in order to defeat the temptations of the Evil One. It is a period of spiritual ‘combat’ which we must experience alongside Jesus, not with pride and presumption, but using the arms of faith: prayer, listening to the word of God and penance. In this way we will be able to celebrate Easter in truth, ready to renew the promises of our Baptism.” – Pope Benedict XVI
