As the Season of Lent continues, we want to remember the importance of prayer and penance in our preparation for Easter.
Reflection on the joys and sufferings of life can strengthen our faith in God. Troubles come to us all; but they help us to depend on God, whether we want to or not. The joyful times help us to count the many blessings that God sends our way.
Prayer is essential for faith to grow. It might seem that prayer brings us closer to God. Prayer actually allows God to come closer to us. We open our hearts in this Season of Lent to the Divine Presence, and faith is found!
May these weeks of Lent be a time of growth and trust for all of us.
And let us continue to pray for one another.
