Lent: Strengthening Our Faith

Father Bart Timmerman explains the season of Lent in which we strengthen our faith. We can strengthen our faith by three traditional practices. The first practice is prayer, where we are encouraged to spend more time in prayer and challenged to add more prayer into our daily routines to become closer with Christ. The second practice is fasting, where we give something up to focus on God, and not on the things of this world. Finally, we practice Almsgiving in which we share what we have for the benefit of others around us.

With these three exercises during this Lenten season, we are able to strengthen our relationship with Jesus so that at Easter, we can celebrate Christ’s resurrection with great joy.
