Everyone knows that there is a season called Lent. But do we recall what each of those once-a-year Lenten rituals and symbols are about? This handy leaflet reminds us of the basics for celebrating Lent fully. It covers the history and meaning of ashes, the "40 days," purple vestments, penance, Stations of the Cross, the Scrutinies, palm branches, holy oils, and the Easter duty.
An inexpensive and easy refresher course to hand all your parishioners at the beginning of this important and solemn season each year.
