A change of heart
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
As we begin this Lenten journey of forty days, it is a call from Christ to reflect on our lives in an honest way before our loving God.

Having identified that action or attitude we then choose a penance that will help us to experience the conversion to which God is calling us.
