Renunciation and Lent


A good story for renunciation, especially in this holy season of Lent…
The boy walked with his mother, holding her hand, with a sweet in the other. A poor lady with a dirty boy, dressed in clothes that were much too large, approached them and asked some help. The boy looked at his mother so as to ask: “Shall I give him?” and when she nodded approval, the sweet changed hands. A passer-by was greatly edified and asked the mother, “Now you will certainly buy another sweet for the boy?” “No,” said the mother, “because renunciation means to do without.”
