A short Lenten message from Bishop Brian. Happy Lent! It is tempting to associate Lent with negativity……we give up things we enjoy, dwell on our sin etc. Yet Lent is life-giving, positive. In six weeks we celebrate that Jesus loved us so much that he willingly died on the Cross. That perfect love forgave sin and conquered the power of death. Lent certainly asks us to admit that we are sinners but also, more importantly, that God’s love is greater than our sin. It is through our Lenten sacrifices, acts of love and prayer that we open up to God and one another. Happy Lent to you all!
