Lent Reflection: March 12th


“Each year, Lent offers us a providential opportunity to deepen the meaning and value of our Christian lives, and it stimulates us to rediscover the mercy of God so that we, in turn, become more merciful toward our brothers and sisters. In the Lenten period, the Church makes it her duty to propose some specific tasks that accompany the faithful concretely in this process of interior renewal: these are prayer, fasting and almsgiving.”   -Pope Benedict XVI

What things have you done this Lent, so far, that are helping you deepen the meaning and value of your Christian life?
