Season of Lent, Season of Overseas Filipino Workers
“Lent is a fitting time for self-denial; we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty. Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance. I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.”
As an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), self-denial is no longer a new term. Your life is like the season of Lent, because you have given up so much just to help and enrich others by your sacrifices.
As you continue living in the season of self-denial as an OFW, may you also view the season of Lent as a time and opportunity for:
Union with God
Blessings beyond measure
Newness of the spirit
Eternal life in heaven
Turning from sins
Wherever you are in the world, may God shower you bountiful blessings this Lent and beyond!
