The Eucharist is a great call to conversion which bears fruit in transforming lives.
–Blessed Pope John Paul II
It was Thursday morning after work that I realized that the Lenten season is approaching to an end. Good news for me, my vacation time was approved and so I am off all of Holy Week (starts April 1st).
Normally during Holy Week I give up all secular things (music, television, movies, etc.), for I really in my best wishes want to reflect on things. Most think it is crazy, while find it a brave thing to do. I just find it a normal thing to do, if you get my point.
This year though, I have decided to keep up with my social media outlets, just no games though (so if you are playing words with friends with me, I will be gone all next week) and I am keeping up with writing in my blogs. So, I am not going to disappear or anything, I will still be typing away. 🙂
This year’s Lenten season was a difficult and is certainly just been plain difficult for me. I started this Lent with the lost of my great-uncle and I started with pulled emotions with friendships. Coming towards the end of the season and I am still trying to handle my mourning (to wish as I have mention before the void of him gone).
I have also, comes to terms with decisions on friendships and my values, though for many they may seem unclear and selfish, I have legit reasons for them. I wish those involve happiness in their life, nevertheless I cannot handle the feelings I get.
I cannot believe it has been close to three years since my baptism and full communion into the Catholic Church. I feel like I have always been Catholic, for it seems to engulf me. I love every bit of that feeling, but there are days I wonder what God has in store for me next, I still such a baby in the Church. This Holy Week I am hoping to reflect on this and as well to whatever God wishes to reveal to me.
