This year the beginning of March brings the beginning of Lent. These six weeks before Easter are a special time for reflection and commitment. Traditionally, Lent is a time to focus on the foolishness and bad behaviour that often spoil our lives. This focus continues to be important - but not because God is angry with us and pointing the finger. God is like a loving parent who longs for what is best for their children. This includes helping the children see how their choices and actions affect other people and themselves, for better or for worse. You are welcome at St Edmundsbury Cathedral during Lent to reflect on your life and God's love for you..
