The church of my childhood paid no attention to Lent. The season's words sounded too mystical to us, too strange and too Catholic.
Lent | Ash Wednesday (Year C)
Joel 2:1-2, 12-17 or Isaiah 58:1-12; Psalm 51:1-17; 2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10; Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
Sustainable Lenten disciplines anticipate an Easter in which they will continue. But surely Easter hope is for something more.
