Those who want to save their life will lose it; and those who lose their life for my sake will find it’ (Matthew 16.25). We often associate Lent with ‘giving something up’, but it is also a good time to begin or to deepen the practice of meditation. Through this ascetic discipline, we enter into the tradition of the Desert Fathers and, as we learn to nurture the silence within, come to experience joy and well-being in every area of our lives.
