Food for thought for Lent

With Lent almost upon us, the latest edition of the Arkansas Catholic in the Diocese of Little Rock has two articles you might find interesting:

– Instead of just giving the rules for Lenten fasting, the paper talked to Scripture scholars and others on why we fast and what we gain from the practice. As the headline notes, “God doesn’t want a fulfilled obligation; he wants our hearts.”

– Another article reports on how Lenten observances are growing in other Christian churches.
