LENT


In Lent, the baptized are called to renew their baptismal commitment as others prepare to be baptized through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, a period of learning and discernment for individuals who have declared their desire to become Catholics. The key to fruitful observance of these practices is to recognize their link to baptismal renewal. We are called not just to abstain from sin during Lent, but to true conversion of our hearts and minds as followers of Christ. We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ's death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.On these pages, you will find a variety of suggestions and resources to help you "raise up," "sacrifice," and "offer" during this Lent and to embrace your baptismal commitment.Catholics are also encouraged to make going to confession a significant part of their spiritual lives during Lent. The U.S. Bishops' statement, "God's Gift of Forgiveness: The Pastoral Exhortation on the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation" can be distributed and shared in parishes. Dioceses are encouraged to make the sacrament available often during Lent and to use these resources to promote participation. We also have resources to help individuals who have not been to confession in a while "rediscover" the sacrament.

"Remember: Lent is not suspended. Holy Week, the Paschal Triduum, and Easter will come. The change in our usual manner of marking the days of the Lord's death and resurrection should stir us to re-examine our heart and seek more intently to follow where the Lord Jesus will lead us in this way of the cross for 2020," says Bishop Jaime Soto.

"Pero recuerden: la Cuaresma no está suspendida. La Semana Santa, el Triduo Pascual y la Pascua del Señor vendrán. El cambio en nuestra forma habitual de marcar los días de la muerte y resurrección del Señor nos animarán a reexaminar nuestro corazón y buscar con mayor atención a dónde nos llevará el Señor Jesús en este camino de la cruz para 2020." - Bishop Jaime Soto
