Christians are called to love one another.  Loving another requires understanding and sharing in the feelings of the other.  One needs to be vulnerable.  Lent is a time for self reflection that demands vulnerability.   Individualism conflicts with vulnerability and can prevent authentic membership in the community.    Christ is the model for being vulnerable.  The quest is to release those dark emotions in which vulnerability is a bad thing.
