Sunday February 3rd 2013

LENT BEGINS a week on Wednesday 13th February.  The time to think about Lent is now. Try to express a Lent rule in terms of The Year of Faith. We are wise if we avoid being too eager. A simple act of self-denial, well kept, nearly always results in other things that trouble us being resolved. Be mindful of keeping Lent with the church. If you can remember, please bring in old palm crosses this week so that they can be made into the ashes for Ash Wednesday.
