It’s the first full week of Lent, a time when we are called not just to “give something up” but also to GIVE. Here at Busted Halo®, we’ve got a great opportunity for you to give that will make a difference in the lives of young people disconnected from the Church: Join our Halo Repair Crew and become one of Busted Halo’s monthly donors.
What is Lent? What are the three practices the Church suggests we do during Lent based on the teachings of Jesus? Why do Catholics eat fish on Fridays and why is it called “Good” Friday, anyway? Fr. Jack Collins, CSP, is once again hitting the streets, this time on Ash Wednesday near St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, asking these questions and more.
Lent is a time for personal conversion, a time when Christians strip away all that is unnecessary and become more mindful of their dependence on God. Our Fast Pray Give Lent Calendar will give you a moment of spiritual contemplation each day, and new and practical ideas for fasting, prayer and almsgiving.
