Lent

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts for 40 days. During Lent we are preparing for Easter. We are asked to do 3 things in Lent

  • To pray more
  • To give up something
  • To help those less fortunate

On Ash Wednesday we received the blessed ashes on our foreheads and took home a Trócaire box. Each of us will do our best during the weeks of Lent to become a better person.

Lent

Lent is like the visitor you’d

Forgotten was coming, and then

She turns up each year , like the daffodils.

“Hello! It’s me- I’m back again!”

She always come on a Wednesday with ashes on her forehead- a sure sign

That as far as my day-to-day living’s concerned

It’s that time of year – spring clean time!

“What’s that? What’s this doing here?

You’d really be better to throw out that lot

And this…. I thought we got rid of it last year!”

Easter Sunday morning she’s gone out that door

Like a bird that just upped and flew

And as I stand and look around me I smile,

‘cos my life is shining like new!
