During these forty days of Lent, we are called to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
We seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture and receiving the Sacraments; we are called to give of our selves by giving alms; and we are called to practice self-control and grow in virtue through fasting. We are called not only to abstain from luxuries during Lent, but to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ's will more faithfully. We recall the waters of baptism in which we were also baptized into Christ's death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.
