Fr. Roman Braga ~ on what our Lenten focus should be

I found Fr. Roman to be a dynamic speaker, who held my attention to the very end, I wished he could have spoken more. In short, he was inspiring. His message to us was that as Orthodox Christians during Lent we put so much emphasis on what should be eaten instead of our spiritual needs. Fr. Roman told us a story about a parishioner who asked The late Archbishop John of Chicago "What shouldn't I eat?' Bishop John replied, "Don't eat each other".
