The Merits of Fasting and Abstinence
#1
I found this Homily to be most helpful for lent, it reminds us that God repays us with a reward for our Good works even though we owe him a huge debt for the punishments due to our Sins and that the burden of salvation gets lighter the more we love God.

From the Homily
"Shut the world out your heart, that he may come in. Ask him to come to you and make his abode with you. Then, when he is really your treasure, he will draw you where he is ; you will not have to try to get to heaven; you will go there of your own accord. To die to the world and live to God, this is the Christian s true life ; and Lent was made to give this life to our souls."
