Once again, God gives us the opportunity to set our heart's compass back to true North. For the next forty days, the Lord gives us a chance to fast, pray, give alms and make ourselves available to all the graces he so richly desires to bestow on his children. These graces are freely given in the sacrament of confession, the Eucharist and all the wonderful spiritual disciplines of Lent. If you have never prayed the stations of the cross, why not wander into your local Catholic parish on Friday evenings as most have the Stations of the Cross every Friday of Lent. You will be glad you did!
May God bless your Lent and help us all to grow closer to Jesus.
