On Great Lent and Repentance

Before we enter the Lenten fast, we are reminded that there can be no true fast, no genuine repentance, no reconciliation with God, unless we are at the same time reconciled with one another. A fast without mutual love is the fasted demons…  we do not travel the road of Lent as isolated individuals but as members of a family.
