In the first reading from Mass today we encounter the beginning of the ministry of deacons. But just what is a deacon? The Friar takes a look at this vocation, explains its meaning and discusses what deacons are called by God to do.
Lent is a time that offers us an opportunity to come to terms with our human condition and open the doors of our heart wider to understand our Lord a little bit deeper. For Lent we all decide what we are going to give up or what we are going to do, but in my opinion Lent is more like Advent where we prepare for Jesus’s coming.
