Studying this brief chapter opens hearts in humble preparation for Lent. Holy contrition sets aside entitlement to any pride filled perception of spiritual vigor. A closer look at its deepest meaning facilitates a sublime contrition that unites our hearts with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The author states "Contrition must be supernatural." Rather than focusing upon "giving up" something of our limited human design, our soul becomes more available to understand what God wants this Lent. Only He knows the glories and beauty of the path He has selected for us!
