"Sharing in the Paschal Mystery"

The journey to Baptism and the renewal of our baptismal promises are so much a part of the spirituality of Lent. Jesus, who is so closely identified with us, permits himself to be tempted and communicates to us his victory over temptation.This victory is fully communicated to us in the celebration of his Death and Resurrection. The goal of our Lenten observance is to enter into this Paschal Mystery.
