From a Creighton Student's Perspective

Especially during Lent, it is so easy to talk about how hard it is to give up something, and how tough it is to not have that thing for 40 days. However, we need to remember that the one who exalts himself is humbled, and the one who humbles himself is exalted.
It is very easy for us to be like the Pharisee, but it is hard to think of ourselves like the tax collector. We don’t like to see ourselves as sinners, but that is what we all are. If we can accept this, then it will make it possible for us to ask God for forgiveness. Let us each try to comtemplate this passage throughout our day and try to incorporate the message into our daily tasks.
Have a great rest of Lent, and a blessed Easter!
