The Borromeo Bulletin - #22

Home of the Bobcats: February 14, 2021

From Dr. Voelkl

This Wednesday is ASH WEDNESDAY, the beginning of Lent. The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Prayer, of course, strengthens our relationship with God. Fasting puts the focus on what is truly needed for our Christian discipleship and what distracts from it. Almsgiving helps us practice charity to become more aware of the needs of others.

Each of us has particular Lenten practices that are personally meaningful.

As you consider your personal Lenten disciplines for this year, it becomes meaningful to think of them them in terms of prayer, fasting and/or almsgiving. I hope that this season affords you the opportunity to grow in faith and love as family.
