Did you know that on Wednesday we began one of the holiest seasons of the liturgical year? Lent. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, where traditionally the palms from last year are burned and used to mark the us with the sign of the cross. This sign reminds us of our reliance on God and the fact that we even though God loves us, we are sinners in need of repentance of forgiveness. Lent, which lasts for forty days, is a season of reflection, with three main parts. For Lent, we can focus on these parts to help us engage with God on the forty-day journey.
