We recently entered the beautiful period of Great Lent. These forty days provide us with an excellent opportunity to focus on our spiritual life, in preparation for the Holy Resurrection of our Lord.
By setting time aside to commune with God through worship, prayer and the sacrament of Holy Communion, we can bring the proper focus into our lives. Our parish has no shortage of opportunities for worship during Great Lent, with our regular Sunday celebration of the Divine Liturgy, the Salutations to the Virgin Mary on Friday nights, and the Presanctified Liturgy on Wednesday mornings, all throughout this March. The Gospel readings and sermons at these services also allow us to learn more about our spiritual lives.
