Lent is a Process Not an Event

Lent has begun and with it our season of penance and fasting. What are you planning on giving up or adding to your spiritual life?

Today, Fr. Mike helps us understand that Lent is less like a crockpot, which you can set and forget but an ongoing iterative process that requires our continual discernment about how we are drawing closer to Jesus.
