Lent: A time to Tear out Vanity

Last month, Pope Benedict called on Christians to reject the cult of self-realization. In a time when our children are constantly told that self-esteem is the ultimate good, that the most important thing in life is not what they're doing for Christ, but how good they feel about themselves, this may sound strange. After all, doesn't our society teach that we should be true to ourselves? But we are called to celebrate our Maker, not ourselves. The "feel good" movement is just one more tool of the Antichrist.
