We are about to enter the Holy Season of Lent and begin our preparation for Easter. The term Lent literally means spring. Spring is a time of renewal, a season where new life begins, and the darkness of winter is behind us and we look to the light for strength and faith. As Catholic gentlemen and followers of Christ we are invited to renew our souls and to make room for GoLittle Black Bookd in our lives. Often, someone will ask you, “What are you giving up for Lent?” but, the real question should be, “How are you going to make space for God in your life this Lent?”

 

Following mass this weekend Knights will be outside church selling the Little Black Books of Lenten reflections.  This Little Black Book is your companion for Lent. Since we have a limited supply available, we have also compiled a list of additional spiritual resources for Lent.
