Lent is a period of spiritual preparation for the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ… namely Easter… During this period we examine ourselves spiritually and renew our commitments… in FAITH… HOPE and LOVE….
Many of us try to be more disciplined for Lent by giving up things like Chocolate… meat cheese.. etc..
Let us this year consider Giving Up on few other things… to build up our character … for our good and also for the common good of our community.
GIVING UP COMPLAINING FOCUSING on GRATITUDE

GIVING UP on WORRYING TRUSTING in GOD who cares for us
