If we wish to change the outer aspects of our lives we must first change the inner attitudes of our minds.

The miracle of inner change is possible. History and literature are full of examples: Paul on the road to Damascus, Charles Dickens’ miser Scrooge, Matt Talbot the alcoholic. Something happened inside each of these, and they became new people. Change requires the substituting of new habits for old ones. It calls for self discipline. You have to command yourself and make yourself do what needs to be done.

The change of heart to which Lent calls us can be accomplished most of all through the power of prayer. ‘Lord, each spring you renew the face of the earth. May you also renew each of us, so that we may be able to celebrate Easter in newness of mind and heart.
