Wednesday 2nd March is Ash Wednesday.
The meaning of Lent and we are invited to observe it faithfully
Brothers and sisters in Christ, since early days Christians have observed with great
devotion the time of our Lord’s passion and resurrection and prepared for this by
a season of penitence and fasting.
By carefully keeping these days, Christians take to heart the call to repentance and
the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel, and so grow in faith and in
devotion to our Lord.
I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent,
by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading
and meditating on God’s holy word.
