We begin our journey through the season of Lent by being marked with ashes in the sign of the cross on our forehead with these words: ├ČTurn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.├« Gaynell Cronin explores customs, traditions, prayers and ways we can keep Lent as we walk together on the path to Jerusalem, preparing for the new life of Easter. During these forty days we pray, we fast, we do good works, we remember. In each area this video invites us to deepen our understanding of Lent as a time to turn to God and to look at the way Jesus lived his life. Offering a memorial to Jesus by people who knew him, it challenges us to speak of Jesus. We continue our walk with others through these days of Lent, the events of Holy Week into the Easter Resurrection. (I-JH)
