Wednesday next is Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Season of Lent. The greatest
Feastday of the year is the feast of Easter. During Lent we prepare for Holy Week
and the feast of Easter, by renewing in our hearts prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
The great events we prepare for is the Easter Triduum: Holy Thursday, the Mass of
the Lord’s Supper, Good Friday, the celebration of the Lord’s Passion and the Resurrection
of the Lord, Easter Sunday. As Christians we have to make a very determined effort
to keep these events of our faith in central focus. The secular and commercial world,
seek to draw our attention to the affairs of this world only. Let us make a very
sincere effort this Lent and do something by way of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
It is also very necessary and important to teach and explain to the children the
true meaning of Holy Week and Easter. Please support the Trocaire collection during
Lent and take home a Trocaire box today.
