Thoughts for Lent…

From Fr. Guy Winfrey:

I’ve been reading the history of the Church of Holland recently. What strikes me is that political strength (whether of William of Orange or Obama) usually tends to duplicity and tyrannical use of power. The only place for Christians to stand is firmly in the Faith with humility, but with courage and strength. We cannot be silent to evils, nor slow to respond in love to those who are in need. But we would be foolish if we thought that we shall overcome the world’s misuse of power (which usually masquerades as love). We are not to surrender our struggle against the evils of this world, but we are not to place our hope here for we are Christians, not political parties. We struggle for the Kingdom of God.
