Dealing with Disappointment

We are mid-way in our Lenten journey, and much like our forgotten New Year’s resolutions, many of us are experiencing disappointment in our inability to maintain a discipline.  As we say each week in our General Confession:  “We have done those things we ought not to have done, and we have not done those things we ought to have done, and there is no help in us.”  
Surely we will all have similar regrets and be disappointed in ourselves when we stand face to face with our Lord at the final judgment. Yet the Easter message at the end of our Lenten journey is clear: “God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” There is “help in us” because Christ is in us.  
Thank God for that great Good News!
