                                                                         February 2020

Dear Rev. Fathers, Religious and Laity,

            On 26th February, the Church commences the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. The Season of Lent is one of the best seasons in the liturgical calendar. During this season, we are provided with numerous ways and means to reflect our relationship with God and thus we are asked to deepen our spiritual life. We are very much aware that despite our goodwill sin continues to pull us away from God. During this season, we are given many opportunities to make a thorough examination of conscience, helping us to realize our sinful nature and trying to amend our wrong doings and thus reconciling with God and our fellowmen. In order to implement our actions, the Church gives us three ways, namely prayer, fasting and giving alms.

            The season of Lent invites us to spend more time in personal prayer. This is the time for us to forgive our enemies and offenders unconditionally. When we do this, the loving God forgives our sins. Generations and after generation, Christians have discovered in prayers, penance and alms giving the way to obtain forgiveness of sins and to come closer to God. We, therefore, shall find in them the great spiritual help to spend this time of Lent as Jesus’ true disciples. I wish you all a Grace-filled season of Lent.

            God bless you all.

                                                                                                                                                               Yours devotedly in Christ Jesus,


                                                                                                                                                                           + L. Thomas Aquinas
