The season of Lent: is a time of preparation and celebration. It is a time to renew our faith life to enter the most important celebration of Easter, the resurrection of our Lord. Pope Francis once mentioned that “Lent is a time of recovery, renewal, and conversion”. Let our prayer and fasting bring about this renewal and conversion. God bless you all.
