“Blessed are you in the firmament of heaven,
praiseworthy and glorious forever.” (Daniel 3:56)
Some people view Lent mainly as a time of self-sacrifice. However, Lent is more than that. Lent is also a time of joy.
During the Lenten season, we celebrate the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, and the Annunciation of the Lord. Also, there is no fasting on Sundays. Then, on Easter Sunday, we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord.
Lent is joyful too. Let us embrace it as much as self-sacrifice.
May the last days of Lent, O Lord, open ours hearts to experiencing the joys and blessings you have given us, and may we share them with those we encounter.
Peace and Goodness
