Lent is a time of spiritual renewal and reflection. It’s a time to take stock of both our faith and our lives, and to take a deeper look at things we might otherwise overlook or take for granted.
This Lent, Catholics are being encouraged to rediscover the act of confession while members of other faiths are taking a closer look at the topic of forgiveness. Why is this?
This year, Lent and Easter dates are a bit more notable than usual. Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine’s Day and Easter falls on April Fool’s Day. Not quite the holiday pairings you would expect, are they?
