Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
The early Christians observed with great devotion the days of our Lord’s passion and resurrection, and it became the custom of the Church that before the Easter celebration there should be a forty-day season of spiritual preparation. 

During this season converts to the faith were prepared for Holy Baptism. It was also a time when persons who had committed serious sins and had separated themselves from the community of faith were reconciled by penitence and forgiveness and restored to participation in the life of the Church.

In this way, the whole congregation was reminded of the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the need we all have to renew our faith.

I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to observe a holy Lent: by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditation on God’s Holy Word.

To make a right beginning of repentance, and as a mark of our mortal nature, let us now kneel (bow) before our Creator and Redeemer.

Luke 9:23-27   3-3-2025
New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition

23 Then he said to them all, “If any wish to come after me, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 

24 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. 

25 For what does it profit them if they gain the whole world but lose or forfeit themselves? 

26 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words, of them the Son of Man will be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.

27 Indeed, truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.”
