Dear Father in Heaven,
It’s that time of year again. Today is the beginning of lent. Somehow it’s more necessary this year. As you know I look forward to the lenten journey as it’s the time to focus on you, to seek solace, break away from the self-centredness of life, to be more conscious of your Holy Spirit and to be reminded of your greatest sacrifice. How deeply honoured am I to have such a meaningful tradition passed down from generations which is still essential to our spiritual vitality today.
