"Inhabitants of parched places"

Isaiah 58:1-12

The danger of an unexamined life is that we might forget who we are, ‘house that believes it is not a house,’ as poet Tracy K. Smith puts it. The season of Lent is a time to pull back the veil, to look hard at the fragility of our own lives, to take stock, to reorient from where we’ve become lost, to repent. And repentance, in the words of the late Fr. Thomas Keating, is simply to ‘change the direction in which you are looking for happiness.’
