The Season of Lent can be seen as both a challenge and as a gift;  time set aside to listen to God calling us to see with new eyes. Am I truly living the Gospel life as Jesus did? Do I respond to the needs of my ‘neighbour’?  Catholic Social Teaching provides us with a guide to proclaim that all human life is sacred and to reach out to those in need.Peter Thomas of the JPIC Team, reflects on the direction given to him by our Church to try to act justly.

On Ash Wednesday we begin our journey to the great feast of Easter. Wearing ashes symbolises our desire for conversion, to turn again towards God. Repentance (conversion) is not so much about feeling sorry for individual sins. It is about changing the direction of our hearts – away from all that limits God’s love and action in us. Conversion is about opening ourselves to a fresh experience of God’s healing love which makes us whole and restores us to our rightful place as beloved daughters and sons in the Kingdom of God. It’s about moving back into right relationship with God and neighbour. For your reflection at home CAH Ash Wednesday
