Purification and Perfection have been called the burden and the blessing of Lent; purification is the hard work, growth in holiness and perfection is the payoff. But both point to deeper truths about the human person, and what it means to live in imitation of Christ. Why is the work of purification so central to what it means to be a follower of Christ, and how do we go about it. And what does Chris's call to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect tell us about what it means to be human, about our identity and our destiny?
