    I have only discovered this treasure trove that you call a blog today, but have been engrossed in reading it. Thank you for what you are offering to those of that are called to protect and defend our beautiful faith. I just finished watching your webinar on New Translation of the Roman Missal, and am wondering where I can find the pdf file you spoke of? Thanks, again, for all you do and share!

    Hey Joe,
    I’m doing a Lent project and I have some questions. Like…. Why do we have a season of Lent?

      Hi Aspen, good question. Lent began in the early church as the final intense preparation period for catechumens before baptism at the Easter Vigil. It made sense for the rest of the Christian community to walk this journey with the catechumens and renew their baptism at Easter as well. Thus, Lent has come down to us as a period during which we focus on what it takes to follow Christ and to practice the 3 disciplines that help us to live out our baptism: prayer, fasting, and giving alms. Suffice to say, Lent has no meaning apart from baptism!
