Lent - Repent and believe in the Gospel

Wednesday 1st March 2017

We are at the threshold of the season of Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday. The imposition of ashes on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday reminds us of the call to repentance and to believe in the good news. It is a season to celebrate the mysteries of our redemption – passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. During this season of Lent the suffering Lord invites us to put love in all that we think, do and act. When there is love then all our actions gain a new meaning: almsgiving becomes generous and spontaneous; prayer becomes union with God and leads to action and fasting becomes a sign of our solidarity with the poor and dependence on God.
