Like any good gardener, Jesus looks for a harvest. When he cursed a barren fig tree, Christ reminded us that time is short, and that we miss out on true growth by choosing to stagnate in sin.
Seminarian Steven DiMassimo from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania shares how Lent helps us to move from frustration to freedom and fruitfulness.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
