Lent has been a time to question our priorities and our worldview. As a Christian, I am challenged to review the way I see the world. Do I see the world as Jesus would have seen it? Do I show compassion, love and mercy to those who disagree with me or irritate me? Do I use my money for just causes or do I even think about it?
As we end this season of Lent, our work of prayer, almsgiving and fasting are not over, but transformed.
As we approach the Easter season, consider your spending habits. Where do you purchase your teas, coffees and chocolates? Where do you purchase your on-line gifts?
I encourage you to consider as part of your Easter reflection to visit Catholic Relief Services Fair Trade section.
