The Heart of Lent in Carmel

Posted by

One Lent, long before I was a Carmelite, I decided to give up music for Lent with the intention of making myself more available for prayer. It was the hardest Lent, yet it was the best too. The liturgical season of Lent provides the opportunity for us to look within and see if there is anything that we need to let go of so we can be freer for Him...
