One of our unique human qualities is aloneness which is different from loneliness. We need time for aloneness in the midst of our daily, hectic life. Loneliness leads into isolation. Aloneness leads us into solitude. One is painful and destructive; the other is productive and peaceful. Loneliness seeks to cling to others in desperation to make us happy. Aloneness finds its strength in the Lord, in whom we can rest. Lent is a special time of God's grace  leading us into spiritual solitude, so that we can be more attentive to his word and direction in our life. Avoid loneliness; seek aloneness.
