The Parish Priest of St. Patrick’s Church in Bangalore in India gave a simple advise on what to do during 40 days of lent. He said we should take lots of BEER.
This ‘special’ beer must be based on the following recipe:
B-BIBLE- Read your Bible. This is God’s given time to be spiritually enriched with The Word of God.
E-EMPATHY- Feel and demonstrate empathy for the poor and neglected and do something about it.
E-EUCHARIST- Go for fellowship with other believers frequently (besides Sunday’s.) If possible everyday. A whole lot easier in these covid times. Fellowship is but a videochat away!
R-RECONCILIATION-This is the best time to reconcile with those we have hurt, not talking, seek forgiveness. Restore our relationship with God and one another.
Have a wonderful and joyful Lent and do not forget your BEER.
You also need much of alcohol….
H: Healthy relationship
O: Offering oneself to be used by The Father in Heaven (not a ‘simple’ thing!) Seek God’s Face and ask to be used for and to do His Will. Pray always – unceasingly!
L: Listening ear
