As Christians, we must strive to be humble. Tis the season for deepening our spiritual life; for being cleansed of our sins; and for being ready to sacrifice our valuable time towards the needs of others. We achieve these things by way of fasting, praying and charitable work. During this Lenten season let us pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us and allow us to grow in holiness and faithfulness.
