LENT at the ORATORY

 

Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving are the hallmarks of Lent – by the completion of which (Resurrection at Easter) each Christian should be more deeply marked out as belonging to Christ. At the start of Lent, each of us was marked with the Sign of the Cross on our heads, re-presenting the Cross which was first imprinted upon us at our Baptism and which, in the sight of God (and of Satan) continues to shine as an everlasting sign of our belonging to God and incorporation into His Family, the Church.
