LENT

LENT

Lent is a time of spiritual renewal, a time of deeper focus on the truths of our faith, in preparation for the great celebration of the central mystery, the death and resurrection of Christ.
As we commemorate the forty days Our Lord spent in the desert, in preparing himself for his mission, and the forty years  the Israelites journeyed through the desert on their way to the Promised Land, we in Carmel also enter into a desert experience, withdrawing from all unnecessary contact and correspondence, moving into a deeper silence so as to give greater space to God in our lives.
May Lent be a fruitful time of grace for all of you.
