Mayfair Convent School Ash Wednesday Mass
On Wednesday, 10 February 2016, Fr. Laslo celebrated with our learners and parish. Learners were shown how the ashes are prepared. Palms from last Palm Sunday are dried and burnt. Some beautiful songs were sung and all learners were blessed with ashes. All are wished a spirit filled Lenten period. As you begin this Holy Season, may you discover the true meaning of LENT, by Leaving behind all Negative things of the past and strive for a Future filled with Hope! (Phi 3: 7 – 14).
A Different Approach to Fasting...
Fasts have a tendency to be oriented toward things like giving up food or television. But there are many other creative ways we can welcome Jesus' healing touch. Here are suggestions you may want to consider:
1. Fast from anger and hatred.
Give your family an extra dose of love each day.
2. Fast from judging others.
Before making any judgments, recall how Jesus overlooks our faults.
3. Fast from discouragement.
Hold on to Jesus' promise that He has a perfect plan for your life.
4. Fast from complaining.
When you find yourself about to complain, close your eyes and recall some of the little moments of joy Jesus has given you.
5. Fast from resentment or bitterness!
Work on forgiving those who may have hurt you.
6. Fast from spending too much money.
Try to reduce your spending by ten percent and give those savings to the poor.
Wishing you all Peace, Love, and Happiness during Lent!
