If you are looking for a great way to really participate in Lent this year, I've got just the thing! Matthew Kelly, founder of Dynamic Catholic, has created another Lenten journey for us to participate in through email. He started this last yer and it was such a great reminder of what we believe and what we are preparing for in those 40+ days of Lent. I have included a video link from last year's program on the Eucharist.
Just click the "Lent box" above and ENJOY!
Below you will find a message from Dynamic Catholic and a link for you to sign up for free. Lent is fast approaching, so be sure to get signed up today!
Each day you will receive an inspirational email with short videos from Matthew Kelly and a member of our team. During the 40 days of Lent, they will share simple ways to bring Jesus into your everyday life.
We are excited to take this 40-day spiritual journey with you to encounter Jesus—and yourself—in a deeply personal way. Let’s make this your best Lent ever!I
The month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family. The first ten days of February fall within the liturgical season of Ordinary Time which is represented by the liturgical color green. Green, the symbol of hope, is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection. The remaining days of February are the beginning of Lent. The liturgical color changes to purple — a symbol of penance, mortification and the sorrow of a contrite heart.
