Lent - A New Season

Each year the Church gives us the season of Lent, which is the great retreat of the Christian people.  During this period of 40 days, we are encouraged to engage in our prayer, fasting, and alms giving as we journey with the catechumens in our parishes in their final preparations for Baptism.

During this Lenten season our lives and actions can help transform us into the likeness of Christ.

A prayer in the Byzantine Vespers puts it this way:

While fasting with the body, let us also fast in spirit.
Let us undo the knots of every contract made by violence.
Let us tear up unjust agreements,
Let us give bread to the hungry and welcome to our house the poor who have no roof to cover them.

During this special season, consider taking time for prayer and works of mercy and, perhaps, a retreat.

Call us at Wisdom House for information on upcoming retreats or spiritual direction.  Our phone number is 860-567-3163.  Our website:  www.wisdomhouse.org.

Words of Gratitude

"I am grateful for my family's support so that I could minister so many years at a distance from our family home, grateful for the trust placed in me for this ministry at Wisdom House, and grateful for the momentum we experienced when Sister Jo-Ann joined me. We were then able to "initiate and not imitate."

~Rosemarie Greco, DW
