WHAT SHOULD BE OUR PROGRAMME FOR LENT?

Liturgical Colour: 

Joel 2:12-18; 2 Cor. 5:20-6:2 & Mt.6:1-6, 16-18

Are you hungry for God and do you thirst for His holiness? He wants to set our hearts ablaze with the fire of His Holy Spirit that we may share in His holiness - and radiate the joy of the Gospel to those around us.

Saint Augustine of Hippo tells us that there are two kinds of people and two kinds of love, “One is holy, the other is selfish. One is subject to God; the other endeavours to equal Him.” We are what we love.

A JOYFUL SEASON FOR US

Joel 2:12-18; 2 Cor. 5:20-6:2 & Mt. 6:1-6,16-18

If we think of Lent as a time for being gloomy and just giving up a few pleasures in life, then we have completely the wrong idea. In fact the Church describes the Lenten season as a joyful one.
