THE SEASON OF LENT
Prayer - Fasting - Almsgiving
‘Behold now is the acceptable time of which we ought to make good use, the holy season of Lent, the time of penance and prayer which lasts for forty days, during which the faithful should intimately unite themselves with the death of Christ, so that they may rise with him to a more Christ-like life in the great Paschal solemnities.’
Prayer, fasting and almsgiving are the traditional ways in which we observe the Season of Lent. The whole Season is to be penitential, with stress on prayer, reception of the Sacraments, and the practice of charity.
The Stations of the Cross
This important devotion is particularly appropriate during Lent as it enables us, individually or with a group, to meditate on the Passion of Christ as we move around the fourteen ‘stations’ (in the form of pictures or images) which are attached to the interior walls of the church.
The Stations of the Cross are beautifully shown on the following website page
