It's the second week of Great Lent, and tonight I went to a presanctified liturgy. The evening presanctifieds are peaceful, and have a particular stillness about them. It's a service that internalises, and so it takes a while to step out of the everyday world into this different space, ie to focus inside oneself.
Great Lent is a journey. It's many things, but amongst others, it's a time you try and see all the crap inside yourself. Sometimes, at the end of the journey, you've cleaned some of it out, or at least you have glimpses of who you really are.
