The Challenge of Lent:
- Personal: How am I living the Christian life? Will I try to do better this Lent? Avoid sin and practise virtue?
- Communal: How do I treat my family, the people I live with, work with, neighbours and friends?
- Spiritual: Will I be faithful to daily prayer, going to Mass and helping the poor of our world?

How blessed we are to be alive.
How blessed to have the comradeship of real friends.
To sit with them and enjoy the talking and the listening,
To know that we are treasured and accepted.
How blessed to welcome the daffodil and spring life breaking forth,
To welcome the red sunsets decorating the hills.
To know that we are cherished and loved.
How blessed we are to be alive.
