The Season of Lent is Here
Lent is a period of 40 days during the Church's liturgical year, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends during Holy Week. It is a time for Christians to turn away from sinfulness and to have a change of heart, as they prepare for the joyous feast of Easter.
It is a time for prayer, penance, works of almsgiving, and charity.
During this season of Lent, may you help us to thank you
for the new life you gave to our World and to our spirits,
to find your presence around us in the sparkle of sunshine.
A word given in encouragement, a smile shared in passing,
to open our hearts to your call, to serve with your loving compassion,
to have courage to ask for help as we journey,
and to know when we have gone off the path
to remember what Lent is all about and to turn our lives toward you.
