Give Up Control for Lent

The meaning of the word sacrifice is to “make holy.” This Lent we are offered the opportunity to let go of our control and accept the difficulties and sufferings that come to us with grace.

Today, Fr Mark-Mary invites us to let go and allow this Lent to fuel our growth in interior freedom and sacrificing control.
