Lent is overrated.

We begin the season of Lent on Wednesday. I have mixed feelings about that.

On one hand, a priest has to like a season in which people renew their faith practices. Some church members become more disciplined. Some take more time for reflection, prayer and study. All that is great.

On the other hand, Lent is too big for its britches. Lent is a secondary season in the church year. Its only purpose is to prepare for a much, much, much more important season: Easter.

Text

I can't go on; I'll go on.

Those are the final words in a novel by Samuel Beckett. He was an Irish poet and novelist, one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.

I can't go on; I'll go on.

If you've lived a little, if you've gone through some things, if you've been around, you have felt like this.

I can't go on; I'll go on.
