"The 17th-century French philosopher Blaise Pascal said that most of us spend our lives seeking diversions in a desperate attempt to avoid the hard and simple questions: who am I? What is the purpose of my life? What does God want of me?
We eat and drink, gamble and gossip, seek out the most banal entertainments, surrender to television and social media, attend party after party - all in order to avoid those questions."
Something to ponder. What is keeping me from confronting the "hard and simple" questions this Lent and what can I do to rid myself of that thing?
We are blessed.
