La Cuaresma - Oraciones, ayuno y ofrendas

P. Juan J. Sosa

En el año litúrgico, la temporada de Cuaresma nos ofrece una buena oportunidad de prepararnos para la fiesta de la Pascua y la celebración de la Resurrección del Señor. Según la tradición católica, cumplimos con esta meta principalmente por las prácticas del ayuno, la oración, y las obras de caridad. Estas tres prácticas nos ayudan ponernos en solidaridad con el Señor y el gran sacrificio que él hizo para nosotros por su muerte en la cruz.


Con un estilo de narración noveléstico, examinaremos las ofrendas, sacrificios, y prácticas cuaresmales en la Iglesia católica desde el punto de vista de Manuel y su búsqueda de Dios durante su visita a la Iglesia el Miércoles de Ceniza.


Lenten season gives us an opportunity to reflect and prepare our faith for Easter. In order to achieve this, there are several popular practices. Father Sosa's book, La Cuaresma: Oraciones, ayuno y ofrendas, walks us through these practices--prayer, fasting, and almsgiving--in a narrative way from the point of view of Manuel and his search for God during a visit to his parish during Ash Wednesday. Fr. Sosa will describe the tradition and history of the Ashes, give an insight of personal prayer and communal prayer during Lent, explain fasting and the meaning of that sacrifice, distinguish between almsgiving and stewardship, and define and explain the Tridiuum.
