"During the penitential season of Lent (six weeks of self-denial, fasting and intense prayer in preparation for the celebration of Easter), remember that Jesus says do these things in such a way that only your Abba knows what you are up to. This is the season of hidden secret acts of loving-kindness. Lent is a frontal assault on the false self, a time of dying daily to self in order to rise to newness of life with Christ."   -Brennan Manning
