Lenten Gospel Dramas

Season of Lent Scripture Study

Through the readings of the season of Lent, we honor the forty days Jesus spent in the desert fasting, praying, giving alms, and offering acts of charity to God. We remember that our life—with its cares and joys—is temporary. Every one of us will one day die and stand before our God. Our actions go before us. Our Lord stands beside us. In Lent, we attempt to become more conscious, to mark and honor the cycles of our lives and to remember that in all we say and do, Christ is in our midst.
