Renunciation

Traditionally the season of Lent was associated with some form of simplification, which in Ireland became reduced to “giving up” something. The true meaning is in making space for the deeper realities in our lives and room to see what is happening.

The ground of renunciation is realizing that we already have exactly what we need,

that what we have already is good.

Every moment of time has enormous energy in it,

and we could connect with that.
