Moore writes about cleansing the soul for Lent

U.S. Catholic reposts Thomas Moore's Lenten message about "Cleansing the soul". Moore writes, "Thinning out and simplifying a busy life helps create a focus on things that really matter at this time of year: reflection on suffering, deep Easter optimism, personal renewal, and hope. Today, in a time of world conflict and economic pressure, everyone knows how precious and elusive a genuine sense of hope can be." He suggests, "Lent should bring you to a point of spiritual intensity so that the Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter touches the mystery of your own existence."

This message is part of the series, "40 Days to a new you". Access is limited for some of the entries. This passage first appears in 2004.
