Lent is a time of moral renewal. It is a compliment the Church pays to us every year, reminding us that we are moral beings. And the protection of the moral conscience is one of the highest responsibilities imposed upon us by the Gospel. Every age sees it’s attacks on the moral ideal, but ours, appears to me, is most insidious in this respect. Modern philosophy, in fact, hardly considers us subjects at all.
