[quote:s7pa023f]But Jon I do like how you have worded the question- not many folks talk about CELEBRATING lent, a good many Catholics talk about lent as some drudgery.[/quote:s7pa023f]
Yeah, I actually chose that wording carefully because I wanted to elicit some different responses. Thanks for noticing. ” title=”Smile” />
I think Lent is a time of celebration – just not quite with the same jubilance that we normally associate with the word “celebration”. Lent is a time to be thankful for Jesus’ sacrifice for us and that, to me, calls for a celebration.
