Lent Approaches

Permalink
Dear All,

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Masses with distribution of the ashes will take place at 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

A garment of sack cloth and a covering of ashes is in Jewish tradition a sign of repentance and penance for wrong done.

Lent for the Christian is a time of penitence and renewal leading us to the great feast of Easter, the most important feast in the Church’s year.

LENT is the Old English word for SPRINGTIME. In America AUTUMN is known as The Fall (the season of the falling of the leaves). LENT is the season of the LEN(g)T(hening) of the days. It is an interesting aspect of the season of Lent. For us then LENT is a springtime for our faith, a time of renewal.

Spring cleaning is undergone wearing a Pinnie, using Flash, and various Aides de nettoyer.

Lenten Renewal is helped by Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving.

Yours,
Fr. Richard
