Happy first day of February!
This is a huge month in the Liturgical Calendar! On February 2, we celebrate the final feast of the season of Epiphany, the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus or Candlemas is the day that we celebrate Jesus revealed as the "light of the world."
Then we have Ash Wednesday, and a whole new season begins, Lent. The season of Lent emerges as a profound and transformative journey. It is a journey that prepares us for the most miraculous event in our lives, the death and resurrection of Jesus. In a culture that frequently prizes instant gratification and superficial pleasures, Lent calls us to something deeper, something more enduring. It’s a call to look inward, to confront our weaknesses, and to embrace the grace that is so freely offered to us in Christ.
Get ready! It's a busy month but an incredible month. Let us embrace it with wonder and awe!
Follow along as I share everything you’ll need to celebrate this special month, including the history, recipes, and traditions.
