What’s the deal with Lent?

My husband has written about an issue that’s been bothering him for a while. I think it’s a really great post. I could be biased. But I do completely agree with what he has written. 🙂

I don’t really understand how this is meant to work. How does denying oneself a worldly object result in spiritual health or show we have spiritual health? This is really what Lent is trying to achieve. It is trying to be a visual medium that shows our spiritual health and a reassurance medium for ourselves that we really can give pleasures up for God. The problem is that it doesn’t work.
