Not one stone will be left on top of another! What sign will show us that these things are about to take place? You will be dragged into synagogues and prisons, and you will stand trial before kings and governors because you are my followers.

They will even kill some of you. Those in Jerusalem must get out, and those out in the country should not return to the city. For there will be disaster in the land and great anger against this people. And Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the period of the Gentiles comes to an end. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth.

And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man. Follow him. That is where you should prepare our meal. Do this in remembrance of me. But what sorrow awaits the one who betrays him. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant. The one who sits at the table, of course. But not here! For I am among you as one who serves.
And you will sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers. Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.
Judas walked over to Jesus to greet him with a kiss. We brought the swords! I was there every day. But this is your moment, the time when the power of darkness reigns. And Peter followed at a distance. Who hit you that time? Finally, they put a royal robe on him and sent him back to Pilate. I have examined him thoroughly on this point in your presence and find him innocent. Nothing this man has done calls for the death penalty.
Crucify him! What crime has he committed? I have found no reason to sentence him to death.

So I will have him flogged, and then I will release him. But he turned Jesus over to them to do as they wished. The soldiers seized him and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. And the criminals were also crucified—one on his right and one on his left. And suddenly, the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn down the middle. He was from the town of Arimathea in Judea, and he was waiting for the Kingdom of God to come.
But by the time they were finished the Sabbath had begun, so they rested as required by the law. He is risen from the dead!

Stooping, he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings; then he went home again, wondering what had happened. They stopped short, sadness written across their faces. This all happened three days ago. You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures. Then he broke it and gave it to them. And at that moment he disappeared! He appeared to Peter.

It begins with the recognition of one sin which our conscience still can see is a sin. Perhaps, however, we only think it is an imperfection or venial sin; but if we consider its causes or nature or occasion, it certain, in a soul which does not consider itself to be a great sinner, that he has overlooked something which conceals the fact that he is in reality a great sinner. Pride is a very spiritual sin, and one who has lost the sense of morality, has lost the sense of what is spiritual.
Lent is a Season for Good Works
However, at the start it is always useful to consider and recognize intellectually that this is true; even if affectively and effectively we do not understand how this can be the case, because of our blindness. So, uprooting spiritual blindness begins with considering the one thing we can still see as a sin or imperfection. This is the first step, because the very nature of spiritual progress is an re-capacitation of the power of the mind to consider spiritual things.
And like dominoes which when aligned properly, cause the next one to fall, when they themselves are toppled, so sins, when recognized and repented of, are the occasion to open our minds to the recognition of other sins. In each step of the process, the recognition of one sin is the work of the conscience in its present state.
But this recognition cannot enable us to make the second step, which is repenting of the sin, because this second step is the work of prayer, devout and persistent to obtain the grace to repent of it. And this can only be obtained by humble supplication.
All kinds of fasts, prayers, liturgies, meditations, pilgrimages, spiritual readings, alms, etc. During this essential step of humble recognition, a sorrow is engendered in the soul, along with a fear and realization of the danger of damnation, that the heart and mind turns vivaciously towards God and stirs it to ardently appeal for grace.
Is Lent a time of penance or repentance?
During such times it sometimes happens that this movement is responsive to grace sufficiently to receive the gift of tears, and during such a gracious movement, the dispositions of the soul can be cleansed and purged from years and years of distorted affections; leaving the heart with a new and healthy sense of sin and its gravity, and a new and healthy vivacity for things spiritual and heavenly. Essential to preparing the soul for such a humble recognition is the practice of mortification. Mortification consists corporally with fasting from beverages and food, abstaining from meat and rich foods; use of cold showers, and the endurance of sensations which are painful or sacrificial.
Mortification of the body does not work, when such activities are undertaken by a spirit of self-sufficiency, a kind of presumption that without God one can work his own repentance, or that in doing such things, one proves that he is not a sinner or is some sort of spiritual giant or athlete. Rather such practices should be undertaken only with the motivation to humble oneself, detach oneself from such a spirit of self sufficiency, and open the door of the spiritual world to the virtue of humility.
Repentance is the principal purpose of Lent, and all other things must be ordered to that. But repentance has as its goal the reuniting of the soul with God and the resumption of the path toward perfection in the pursuit of eternal salvation. Lent thus finds it glory, not in preparing us for liturgical celebrations in time, but in being an occasion to return to the quest for eternal salvation in eternity. Alexis Bugnolo said:.
