According to the early Fathers of the Church, all true repentance must begin with humility. To take our eyes off others’ sins and instead to admit our own is an act of humility.
In our faults we come to know more profoundly the love of God. Repentance then is to live within the dialogue of salvation.
Lent is a time to delve deeply into our lives during this season of penance and give a thorough look at what our values are and how we live them out each day.
