Having arrived halfway our Lenten journey we are invited to review what has transpired so as to press onward on what is yet to come. The saying goes “those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it” George Santayana The Life of Reason, 1905. It is this same understanding that prompted Chronicles to lead their contemporaries through a quick overview of their past performance. At times what we shun is the very message that God sends to console us. Today the word of God reminds us to evaluate all that has been painful and contradictory in our lives.
