This month of February transitions us from the Ordinary Time of the Church year into the season of Lent. The season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14th. The days of Lent will invite us to strengthen our faith by greater attention to prayer, fasting, and good works. As we look ahead to these says of Lent, it can be a good time to be thinking about what we can do to strengthen our faith during this holy season. Let us pray that they will be days of spiritual growth for all of us.
