Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. During this season of the Church year people make a special effort to pray, study, fast, and serve their numbers in works of mercy.

Even though Lent is a penitential season, its purpose is to prepare us to celebrate the resurrection. In other words, Lent helps us to appreciate that God is making all things new. Through us. I offer the following brief video in that spirit. Blessings…….
