Do We Want to Get Back to Normal, or Does Lent Call Us to Something to Deeper, Bishop Asks on Ash Wednesday
“Do we need Lent this year?”
That’s the question Bishop Ronald Gainer posed as he celebrated noon Mass on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, at St. Patrick Cathedral in Harrisburg.
“It may well be that you and I are less eager this year for Ash Wednesday and to begin the season of Lent than we have been in past years. After all, it seems like we’ve been living Lent for 11 months now,” he said in his homily.
