To experience a conversion during the period of Lent truely is a grace of the Lord. All our actions originate in Him and go towards Him. From beginning to end, He is present in our activities. The primacy of Grace in the period of Lent aims to make us aware of the profound relation of God and man and not to humiliate us. In the focus on the Lord, listening to his voice and attaching ourselves to Him, one chooses for life and happiness.
