The Mercy of God

Today is Cheese Fare Sunday; tomorrow is Lent. Usually we face Lent with indifference or with dread. But let us think about Lent as an expression of the mercy of God.

God loves us. He is not trying to punish us by forcing us to go through Lent. He is trying to help us. How? Lent is an opportunity for us to purify ourselves. From what? From sin.

May Christ bless all men in this Lent.
