FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT - YEAR C
14th February 2016
Lent- 40 Days, 40 Opportunities of meeting the Lord
Our society is fond of tattoos and logos. Business organisations, schools, clubs and sporting teams use them. As we prepare to enter Lent the Church presents us with a “logo.” That logo which marks out the Catholics in a crowd takes the form of a cruciform smudge of ash. The cross of ash identifies us as a Christian committed to living and dying and rising with Christ.
