Preparing for Lent
Lent is a time of preparation for the death of Christ on Good Friday and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Starting Wednesday, February 18th, it is a time when people make a renewed attempt to be better Christians and to understand their religion better. Thanks to Stephen Fry’s outburst, religion and God have been much discussed topics and Fr. Vincent O’Hara, a Carmelite explained that Lent is a time to know God better and why he too doesn’t believe in the God described by Stephen Fry. He explained more to Miriam Gormally but began by explaining why Lent still has a “meaning for all kinds of people”.
