Lent is here once again.
That time of the year in which the Church spends forty days in the desert (so to speak) is here and I'm putting down a few resources for those coming here to look for "Lenten homilies":
- Click HERE for this year's Lenten message from Pope Benedict.
- From an article by a Benedictine about just what is to be gained by "giving something up" for Lent?
- From the website of the North American College in Rome, explanation of the ancient devotion of the "Lenten stational churches". Each of the 44 churches are listed, along with their history and some pictures.
- Godzdogz provides a "virtual Lenten retreat" being posted on the internet by a group of Dominican students. Each day during Lent, a new entry will appear with scriptural readings, reflections, etc.
Wishing all of you a blessed & joyful Lent ahead.
