Lent Meditations

Message from Fr Douglas – Lent

As you know Lent is approaching. It is a time of preparation for the celebration of Easter. The tradition of the Church is that this preparation takes 3 forms: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. 


I do urge you to think about supporting a charity throughout Lent. There are various charities the parish supports, mainly SCIAF, Fresh Start and the SVDP and also others such as Mary’s Meals. Information is available at the back of the church.

Regarding penance, it is good to plan  ahead.  It would be good to choose something that is realistic and achievable. The important thing is that this be a small everyday gesture of love for the Lord. Even something as simple as not taking sugar in your tea done everyday is seen by the Lord and valuable in the spiritual life.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting and abstinence and traditionally Fridays in Lent are days on which we particularly try to perform some small penance for the Lord.
