Ash Wednesday falls this week. It is the beginning of this privileged time. Under our Lent page here, we have a schedule of services and other opportunities we are offering so that this season might indeed be "lived more intensely." I hope you will review it and mark your calendars to join in the various activities that are scheduled.
The season of Lent during this Jubilee Year should also be lived more intensely as a privileged moment to celebrate and experience God's mercy. How many pages of Sacred Scripture are appropriate for meditation during the weeks of Lent to help us rediscover the merciful face of the Father.
