Lent is not a neutral word

  1. You are quite right and it surprises me every year how many non-church-goers take up the challenge of Lent. I sometimes wonder if we made faith ‘harder’ would it be more ‘popular’. I don’t think I have ever had two Lents the same and not expecting any different this year. The important lesson that we are brought closer through Galilee or Jerusalem.

  2. Eight years ago this Easter Vigil I was received into the Catholic Church as an adult. Until I explored the Roman Catholic expression of the Christian faith, I didn’t really experience Lent fully. Now each year I look forward to setting aside more time to spend with our Lord during this blessed season of Lent. It is such a joy to step back from the busyness of our lives and reflect on our Creator.
